Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs, 352 pages, read by Tammy, on 07/24/2012

One teen’s search to discover the truth about his family heritage from all the stories his grandfather told and really to find his place in the world and where he belongs. A time-traveling story with bits of historical fiction set in World War II and the present at the same time about humans gifted with special abilities and the creatures that are trying to find and destroy them. I enjoyed the story and the mystery but the most unique thing about the book was the antique photos used by the author throughout the story instead of illustrations that show weird camera affects, special tweaking in the dark room or perhaps humans with special abilities – that is for you to decide. A truly unique coming of age story.
