Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is one of the most unique and intriguing books I have read in a while. It is delightfully spine-tingling and meaningfully enhanced with memorable vintage photography. Ransom Riggs’ book of adventure and discovery began as the author’s hobby of collecting old photos. These creepy and mysterious pictures inspired him to write a book about their origin, tying the pictures together with an engaging story of sixteen-year-old Jacob and his search to understand a box of old, eerie photos that belonged to his grandfather. As Jacob learns more about his grandfather’s past and the “peculiar,” gifted orphans he grew up with, Jacob is led to an isolated island and an abandoned orphanage that may not be as empty as it seems.
