Jacob's grandfather used to entertain--and terrify--him with tales about growing up in an orphanage where each and every resident had some sort of peculiar characteristic: A girl who could fly, a brother and sister who were unusually strong, a boy who had two mouths, etc. At 16, Jacob doesn't believe these stories like he did when he was a child. At least, not until his grandfather is murdered and doctors orders being him to the mysterious Welsh island that is the site of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. There, he learns that his grandfather's stories just might be true.
This one is just awesome! Totally unlike anything I've read before and worth checking out!--AJL
