Miss Peregrine's HomeMiss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Ransom Riggs

As a kid, Jacob formed a special bond with his grandfather over his bizarre tales and photos of levitating girls and invisible boys. Now at 16, he is reeling from the old man’s unexpected death. Then Jacob is given a mysterious letter that propels him on a journey to the remote Welsh island where his grandfather grew up. There, he finds the children from the photographs–alive and well–despite the islanders’ assertion that all were killed decades ago. As Jacob begins to unravel more about his grandfather’s childhood, he suspects he is being trailed by a monster only he can see. Interspersed with photos throughout, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is full of plot twists, turns, and surprises. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. One of my all time favorite novels I’ve ever read. So clever and enthralling. The photos make the novel and story absolutely amazing! – Kathy Carter, Circulation
