Teen Book Review- Miss Peregrines Home for Perculiar Children


A few months ago when I was at the movies I saw the trailer for #Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. I decided to read the novel before I saw the movie and I loved it. The book is unique. There are many odd photographs throughout the book that go with the story which made me wonder if the author saw the photographs and based the story around them. Either way it really doesn’t matter. The storytelling is artful and exciting.


It reminds me a X-Men where these children have special powers. The story is about a boy named Jason who saw hi grandfather’s murder by a strange creature. No one believes him. His parents believe that he’s traumatized after grandfather die but soon Jason discovers a world where the normal rules don’t apply and children who have special skills. It was very exciting and unexpectedly filled with a little romance to boot. Read this book for the beautiful writing and the great story.
