One family tragedy results in a huge secret that may lead to a dark and dangerous turnout. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is a story about a boy named Jacob who explores an abandoned orphanage and finds out that the orphans that once lived here are still alive, each with a "special" talent.
In my opinion, I did not like the book very well, but it is interesting. It is filled with mystery and suspicion. The book included pictures of each of the orphans doing their "special" talent that I thought was disturbing. I also did not like the book because of the author's way of painting the scenes. He does not describe the scenes in the book too well, and so it was very difficult to imagine what is going on in your head.
I would recommend this book to readers that are interested in a mysterious plot. I would also recommend this book to readers ages 12 and up because of its disturbing images and confusing text.
