When Jake discovers clues to a mystery that spans alternate realities and times, he uncovers a secret refuge known as Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As he learns about the residents and their unusual abilities, Jake realizes that safety is an illusion, and danger lurks in the form of powerful, hidden enemies. Jake must figure out who is real, who can be trusted, and who he really is.From what I can remember of the book, it started off promisingly (introducing all the interesting 'peculiar children' and their talents), but kind of fizzled out towards the end.
The 'superpowers' - for want of a better phrase - of the children were certainly the most memorable part of the book (especially accentuated by the supposedly real, 'found' photographs that accompanied it), while the actual plot, except for it having something to do with the Second World War, left no real impression on me.
Hopefully it will be more dramatic when realised visually.
