From the Publisher:
A horrific family tragedy sends sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of an old orphanage that was home to children who were more than just peculiar, but possibly dangerous--and who may still be alive. Illustrated with vintage found photographs.
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.
