Jacob Portman thinks he's just about as normal as a 16 year old boy could get. However, after his grandfather's strange death, he begins to ask questions about his grandfather's peculiar life. Who really was Grandpa Portman? A trip to the island from his grandfather's childhood answers these questions, and turns Jacob's life upside down.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is slightly scary at first. There are so many unanswered questions, which makes you want to read more. I love the twists that the author puts around every corner, making it an unpredictable story.

If you like creepy or 20th century setting books, then Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children would be perfect for you. Also, if you like unexpected outcomes and monsters, this will be a great read for you.
