Summary

A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. And a strange collection of very curious photographs. It all waits to be discovered inMiss Peregriners"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 Peregriners"s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children who once lived here-one of whom was his own grandfather-were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a desolate island for good reason. And somehow-impossible though it seems-they may still be alive. A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography,Miss Peregriners"s Home for Peculiar Childrenwill delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.
