Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, by Ransom Riggs
Jacob doesn't believe in fairy tales. When his grandfather used to tell him about living in a home with other children that had peculiar abilities, such as floating and being invisible, while strange monsters chased them, Jacob believed him. When he was five. Then he finds out the "monsters" were just Nazis from World War Two, and the kids were made up in his imagination. After his beloved (but a little crazy) grandfather dies, Jacob is left with his grandfather's last words--strange fragments of sentences that didn't make sense. So Jacob is off on a quest--across the globe--to discover what these sentences actually mean. And he does--these monsters, these peculiar children, this "Miss Peregrine", are all real, just stuck in a time loop on the day September 3, 1940, the day before the bomb hit, destroying all of the children and their protector. Things get even more strange--and Jacob is stuck in the middle of it.
I loved this book! It was extremely unique and put together well. There are pictures within the book that correspond with the story, and I loved that extra touch I definitely recommend it! I will have a discussion up on my YouTube soon, as well.
