Fascinating Bestseller

If you have not read it, I recommend Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. It was on the New York Times Bestseller List earlier this year, and I finally got a chance to read it myself. It was worth the effort, and would provide interesting discussion material. Imagine a young man who can see monsters, that only his grandfather knows about. Are they real? Are they a delusion? Just where was the "home" his grandfather has talked about all these years? With his grandfather gone, will Jacob ever find the answers to free him from his relentless nightmares? Were there really children as peculiar as his grandfather talked about?

You will not easily put this down or forget it. It is a great first novel!
