A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of very curious photographs.
It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.
A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.

This story has so many wonderful elements, from the writing itself and how the author used words to take you away, to the plot and how deep it takes you and makes you read until you eat every word and photo up.
Yep, that is exactly what this story did to me.
I kept telling the hubster, peculiar indeed, but in such a cool way. I totally expect he is going to read it now. It's not like I have stopped talking about it.
Anyway, pay the coin and get a copy. It is totally worth it!
Recommend? Do you really need to ask? YES!!!!!!!!!!!!
