by Ransom Riggs, 352 pages, Grades 8 and up.

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is about a boy named Jacob Magallan Portman. Before his beloved grandfather died, Jacob would always listen to his fascinating stories. Aside from the two being a part of a very emotionally distant family, Jacob and his grandfather were always very close. Jacob took his grandfather’s death extremely hard, he felt as if there was more to him that needed to be discovered. Throughout the book, Jacob travels to the island of Wales to try and discover more about his grandfather’s interesting past life. Jacob also discovers more about himself along the journey. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is filled with magic, mystery, courage, and revelations.

If you liked this book you might enjoy the rest of Ransom Riggs’ series; Hollow City is book 2.

If you like mysterious fantasy books you might also like Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia or  The Ocean at the End of the Lane, by Neil Gaiman.
