I have been super busy with the final weeks of school and hadn't had time to read much and so I didn't exactly have anything to post. But it being the standardized test week I've been able to catch up and finally get to something that's been sitting on my bookshelf for several months now. What could it be? Hm... I wonder...
It's Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs.
Did you know birds can time travel? I didn't either until I read this book. The story takes you through the normal everyday life of Jacob Portman, the grandson of a Polish Immigrant who lived a miraculous life. The story takes sudden turn to the paranormal when his grandfather Abe calls sixteen-year-old Jacob at work, hysterical that something is after him and he can't get into his gun cabinet because Jacob's father hid the key for his safety.
Ever read a book where they describe someone and you wish they included a picture of said person?
Ransom Riggs was so kind as to place pictures throughout the story when he introduces a new peculiar child to Jacob's life.
This probably seems vague and uninteresting, but this is one of those times where I just don't want to give anything away. Please, just take my word for it when I say it's worth it.
