From the Publisher:
A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. And 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 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 Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.
Annotation:
Riggs's moody debut novel, which landed on the New York Times Besteller list, finds 16-year-old Jacob Portman on a Welsh island trying to recover from the savage murder of his grandfather. Anxious and prone to nightmares and seeing monsters, Jacob meets the peculiar children of Miss Peregrine's home circa 1940: one can control fire, another makes himself invisible, and another has superhuman strength. Strangely, it turns out, Jacob's grandfather once lived in the institution long before he served in World War II. Rumors of "hollows," monsters who are killing and kidnapping abound, and Jacob, being the only one who can see them is determined to save the children and Miss Peregrine. Nearly 50 creepy, vintage photographs appear throughout, creating a diabolical atmosphere to this spine-tingling and ultimately, empowering fantasy.
