Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

by Ransom Riggs

Jacob is a rich kid, not spoiled, but not suffering or struggling until his eccentric grandfather is murdered. Jacob’s convinced he saw something, but adults think his brain overloaded and he’s in counseling.

But what if all those stories his grandfather told of the orphanage during the war were more than stories. Sure they were outrageous, but what if there was some element of truth? So Jacob travels to Europe to visit an island where there is just one phone line. His psychiatrist convince his parents it’s ok. And dad tags along to check out the bird population.

Jacob discovers that maybe he was too hasty dismissing his grandfather’s outlandish stories. Maybe there was a reason these freaky kids were here. Was it to protect others? Was it to protect them?

Good story. Great pictures. Gives closure to this book and sets us up for the next. (there are soon to be 3) This is for younger YA and older middle grade readers.
