Anthony Buruca Zapata The most weirdest book ever!After his grandfather's murder, apparently by a make-believe creature, 16-year-old Jacob Portman goes to Wales to learn the truth about his grandfather's past. He finds that his grandfather lived in a derelict orphanage for "peculiar children". That is where he meets Emma, a "strikingly pretty" girl who can control fire. She uses time travel to take him back to 1940 to meet Miss Peregrine, the orphanage director, who lives with the other children in a "time loop". Jacob enjoys spending time with the other peculiar children, such as Millard, who is invisible, and Bronwyn, who has incredible strength. In the pub where Jacob is staying, he hears stories of mysterious deaths in the region, and he warns the peculiar children. They tell Jacob that the deaths were caused by the "hollows" or "hollowgasts", the same monsters that killed his grandfather. Jacob later learns that he too is a peculiar, and realizes only he can see the monsters and stop the killings.

After Jacob (with Emma's help) kills one of the hollows, Miss Peregrine is kidnapped. The children rescue Miss Peregrine, but she is in bird form and cannot change back to human form. Ultimately the peculiar children must find another time loop when theirs fails to reset. A loop must be reset every day by the owner-in this case, Ms. Peregrine-and she is trapped as a bird, causing the loop to disappear and forcing the children to find a new home.

Samantha Is the second book worth reading? I liked the first book but it's a bit too sic-fi for me...


Nina totally i loved these books and they get better as you go

Yes, very worth reading. I thought the book was actually Fantasy, but it's your opinion. I think the second book is a little more action than sci-fi, and a little more history to the plot.


Anne This isn't sci-fi at all; it's paranormal fiction. The second book is just as good, if not better, than the first.

Only one more week until the third installment is released! I would definitely recommend you read the second, if you haven't already.

Did you mean to post a review instead of start a discussion thread? If so, what you do is open the book page, select a "star" rating (just under the cover photo of the book on the top, left of your screen), and then write your review when prompted.


Cindy Johnson I loved all three books.
