Place on Hold
Synopsis: A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of curious photographs.
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.
My thoughts: I had gottten this book out from the library twice before and didn’t read it. I got it out a third time and I thought it looked to weird, but honestly it was an amazing book. It all starts when the main character’s mysterious and crazy grandfather dies. Jacob finds the dead body, and a monster near by which he believes killed the grandfather. He discovers where his grandfather lived as a child. A group home on an island. Jacob and his dad travel there. That’s where Jacob meets many children with weird talents, and he discovers a darker more intresting world that he belongs in. All in all, I would definitley recommend this book to anybody who likes supernatural book.
