Teen Book Club: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

Thursday, August 9, 2012  
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

We've got a monthly book club going! Come discuss your favorite books!

Each month we have a round robin where everyone shares the best thing they've read recently and/or something they WANT to read. We'll vote on each title and the winner gets read by EVERYONE to be discussed at our next meeting.

(If you want to join in, we have extra copies of the book at the customer service desk--just ask for a copy of the Teen Book Club selection.)

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of very curious photographs.

It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.

A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.
