Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

City of Thieves

Recommended by Colleen in Outreach Services…

Colleen’s synopsis:
Sixteen year old Jason heads off to Wales to find out the truth about the home that his grandfather grew up in. His grandfather had filled Jason’s head with all sorts of weird monsters and peculiar children. Now he is left to sort out what is real and what is fantasy.

She says:
If you have ever wondered where the side-show people come from read this highly entertaining and fanciful story. The beginning of the book has you believing that the monsters Jason’s grandfather tells him about are the Nazis in the 1940’s, but as Jason discovers truth is stranger then fiction. I enjoyed all the twists and turns of this story and Jason’s quirky narrative.
