Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Reviewed by Meg S. (8th Grade ,Teen Advisory Board Member)
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is a very good book about, you guessed it, peculiar children. Jakob Portman’s Grandfather was always telling him stories as a kid. You know the type, monsters, children with fantastic abilities and time travel. Years later, Jakob’s grandfather dies, suddenly and mysteriously. Naturally Jakob freaks, starts having nightmares, and goes a little crazy, but can’t stop thinking about Grandpa Portman’s last words. These words lead Jakob to England and creatures of the past. Miss Peregrine’s is a very good book and knows how to leave you hanging. Although, it is a bit of a cliffhanger. I would like to add that it does have a bit of foul language that I think it would be good without, but Miss Peregrine’s is still a very good book and I give it four stars.
