Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs really is peculiar. Jacob finds a time loop, following his grandfather’s orders. And what does he find in it? Miss Peregrine and her peculiar children of course! How peculiar? Well, it varies from flying to creating fire with your hands. Jacob becomes great friends with these children. Well, these children look young but are over 100! He also discovers secrets about not only his now late grandfather, but himself as well. However, then he must save his friends from a great peril that ONLY HE CAN SEE (it’ll make sense after you read the book).
My favorite thing about this book is that it has photos. It’s amazing how Riggs took simple photographs and turned them into complex stories! However, some of these pictures were just a bit creepy. Overall, this was a really great book. I’d recommend it to friends and give it 4/5 stars.

This book is about a boy, Jacob, who travels to an island (which used to be a prison area) with his father. The boy looks for Miss Peregrine’s home for peculiar children because his grand father insisted that he go there and be “safe from the monsters.” Now that Jacob’s grandfather died from a weapon, Jacob is determined to find out whether all of the fairytale stories about the kids that could fly, and the monsters that were after the kids were true. But once he gets to the island, he finds out that everything is true. The peculiar kids live in a time portal where the same day repeats over and over again.
I liked this book because it leads an adventurous tale and Jacob can’t trust anyone except for the other kids. There are many twists in the story that will surely excite the readers.
