Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

When Jacob’s grandfather is brutally killed, it sends him to a remote island in Wales to cope with his loss and learn about his grandfather’s childhood there. He soon finds the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s home for peculiar children. He discovers while exploring the ancient hallways and rooms, that these children might have been dangerous and quarantined in the middle of nowhere for a reason. He also finds that even though they all died when a bomb hit the home during the war, they could impossibly be still alive.

Every so often a book comes along that is pure magic, and Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is one such book. Part fantasy, part adventure, part eccentric photo collection, this is a story that will enthrall and enchant teens and adults.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.
