A mysterious island.
An abandoned orphanage.
A strange collection of very curious photographs.
It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.

Spoilers Ahead! While we don't give too much away, we do talk about the book as though we've read it. Take a look at what we had to say about this month's book, or you can skip straight down to the end to see which book won out for next month's read!
Claire: I loved this book so much. I felt it was so well written, some of the sentences were so expressive and emotional that it blew my breath away. I don't normally read books with male protaganists but this one caught me right away. Even with school I finished the book in three days. I was sad when it ended because I didn't want to leave the characters. I hope that there are more books to come, and it did end with a cliff hanger so there could be more (hopefully)! I am so glad that we picked this book. I loved the way the author combined the old photographs with the story. So different from anything or any story I have read. I can't say enough good stuff! Loved it!
