Not Your Normal Adventure Tale

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children Bookcover Jacob has never been normal. An heir to a small-time pharmacy fortune, the teen has never fit in and his only friends include a high school rebel and his doting grandfather who is known for tall tales. While Jacob views the fantastical stories of his grandfather's youth with a skeptical eye, he has always shared a close bond with the WWII veteran.

When tragedy strikes Jacob finds himself drawn to the place of his grandfather's youth: a small island off the coast of Wales. There he discovers startling secrets about his grandfather's past, and falls in with some of the island's most mysterious inhabitants.  The strange tale takes a dangerous turn when a menacing new visitor threatens Jacob's new friends. Suddenly, Jacob learns that he may be their only hope for survival.

 A riveting adventure tale juxtaposed with actual antique photographs, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is a unique coming of age tale that captivates until the final page.
