This book is about a troubled sixteen year old boy named Jacob who goes to an island because he is drawn to the land of Wales. There, is where he finds out the crumbling abandoned mansion that was once a place of peace for peculiar children. Miss Peregrine sends a couple of kids to get Jacob, and help him explore the odd past of the mansion, and the story of Miss Peregrine's home(mansion) for peculiar children will unwind. . .

I think this book was a great coming-to-age story like Harry Potter. This book is frighteningly good. With pictures throughout, and each have a unique story behind it. The author did a really good job of explaining Jacob's story. The only thing that bothers me is that there is excessive cursing in it. Or in other words, 'This world isn't perfect. Nor are the books.'

I recommend this book to those who enjoy looking at pictures, and reading text that makes you think about what you think the word 'peculiar' means. Unique children with different abilities.
