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, Ransom Riggs's wildly successful debut novel for young adults, which mixes fiction and photography to create a haunting gothic thriller. Still reeling from his grandfather's death, 16-year-old Jacob journeys to the remote Welsh island where his grandfather grew up, and discovers the crumbling ruins of the titular institution. 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.
"A tense, moving, and wondrously strange first novel. The photographs and text work together brilliantly to create an unforgettable story."—John Green
