Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs was just recommended to me by my sister, Gayle. It is the story of a boy who embarks on an adventure following photographs left by his murdered grandfather. The photos lead him to a remote island off the coast of Wales where Miss Peregrine’s orphanage is in tatters. As the boy explores the hallways and bedrooms of the orphanage, he realizes that the children were not just peculiar, they may have been dangerous! The plot thickens… While I am just pages into this novel, I am intrigued by the mix of vintage photography and fiction.
A sequel, The Hollow City-with more vintage photography and more mystery is set for publication in January 2014.
