This is a book I had picked up to read long ago, but never got around to it. I did enjoy the beginning of this story, but my dislike of fantasy killed it about half way.
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children in a story about a boy (Jacob) who grew up listening to his grandfather's stories from growing up in a children's home with very peculiar children. He loved these stories until he grew older and convinced by other family members that it was just make believe. After the death of his Grandfather, he decides to find out for himself if there is any truth to these childhood stories. there his adventures begin.
