Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children

Have you ever seen a girl who can’t keep her feet on the ground? When I ask this question I am inquiring have you seen a girl who levitates against her will? If your answer is “yes” then you will find out how it was possible by reading a New York Times best seller, Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children. If your response is “no” then if you read this best-selling novel then not only will you read a good story, but you will find “proof” of the peculiar “facts.”

Jacob Portman wanted nothing more than to live an ordinary and uneventful life, but when you have a grandfather like Grandpa Portman, a man so extraordinary, so peculiar, that it passed down to his grandson. Growing up Jacob heard awe inspiring stories of invisible boys and girls that could generate fire from their fingertips at will. Then there were the horror stories, the ones filled with monsters with hollow hearts and souls that would search out these peculiar children to snatch them and devour their souls. As Jacob is dragged into this world years later at the age of sixteen, he finds that he is more involved with this group of peculiars than he could have ever imagined.

This book written by Ransom Riggs is being adapted into a film by Tim Burton that will be coming out on September 30th of this year. Some of the main cast will be played by Eva Green (Miss Peregrine), Asa Butterfield (Jacob Portman), and Ella Purnell (Emma Bloom).
