Do you believe that there is more out there than we think? Do we pay more attention to scientific/logical things than unbelievable discoveries?
In Miss Peregrines Home For Peculiar Children by Randsom Riggs, a teenage boy is just getting over the fact that his life is ordinary when weird things start to happen. His grandpa starts going crazy telling him to go to this island to stay away from monsters. For his grandpa’s sake he decides to go to the the island and see if anything he was told is true.
My favorite part is when Jake, the main character, finally meets the peculiars. He is shocked and thinks he is delusional. Then he is told that he is peculiar too, he doesn’t believe it. In fact I remember getting so excited about this event that I almost got grounded for staying up so late reading.
This extraordinary, adventurous story will teach you to find the ones who you can trust. Know that at your worst you can depend on them. You have someone, you’re not just on your own.
Something wonderful about this book is details and it’s relation to you. What I mean by relation is that this book’s characters’ feelings are the same as yours right then. It takes you with it, nothing happens that they explain later on. You read about what happens when it happens. Which is why you feel the same emotions as the characters, at the same time. Details are special in this book, you feel like you’re in it. All five senses are important.
You will check under your bed after reading this book. It completely puts you in the zone. I highly recommend Miss Peregrines Home For Peculiar Children by Randsom Riggs to the outside-of-the-box-thinkers because it makes you want to be super cautious and act like a really educated detective.
