Miss Peregine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs****

Miss Peregine's Home for Peculiar Children is the very weird tale of Jacob Portman. Jacob responds to his grandfather's very last wish: "Find the bird. In the loop. On the other side of the old man's grave. September third, 1940." This sends him on a quest to find out the secrets his grandfather was hiding, from him and his whole family. He figures out what his grandfather is talking about, and he himself finds out he might be peculiar, just a little bit.

I really liked this book because it had a mysterious feel to it and it keeps you going because something new happens all the time. I would recommend this for anyone over the age of ten. It made me think about what would happen if there were peculiar children like the ones in the book wandering the world for help. Who says there aren't?
