Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children

Summary: 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.

Why I recommend it: Because I read it and enjoyed it. It's not vampire fiction, werewolves, fallen angels. It's just a good book, that's sci-fy enough to be a good read, fantastical, reminiscent of X-Men a little. It's great. The pictures are a little disturbing, just look at the cover. It may not be my favourite book, but it's well worth a read!
