Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (Miss Peregrine #1) by Ransom Riggs

Hardcover352 pages
Published June 7th 2011 by Quirk Books
A mysterious island.

An abandoned orphanage.

A strange collection of very curious photographs.

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.

A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography,Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.

First of all the cover and the title tells everything about the story, the pictures the style of the book.
The book is about a boy called Jacob that when his grandfather dies, he tells Jacob to go to the island the only place where he can be safe; so Jacob goes to the island with his dad and he tries to find Miss Peregrine's and many peculiar things happen after that.
The pictures of the book are really good for the story because everything matches perfectly and the story of love and the characters are unique because this book is different from others and that's important about books.
But there were some parts like at the beginning and the middle was really boring and I was really desperate about what was happening during the book. But I absolutely cant wait for the second book to come out.
