A mysterious island.An abandoned orphanage.A strange collection of very curious photographs.It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that makes for a thrilling listening experience. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow--impossible though it seems--they may still be alive.A spine-tingling fantasy, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.

I really enjoyed it but sometimes found that it didn't move along quite as fast as i needed it to.

What a "peculiar" story. There are some great parts in the story that really draw the reader in and and make you want to keep on reading (a real page turner). There are some parts that can be scary for young readers, which is why this is considered a YA book. I recommend this book to those that are reluctant to read.

You really do not want to just listen to the audiobook! The photos in the print book are crucial to the story. Maybe check out both!
