Hollow City by Ransom Riggs

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children


This book, Hollow City by Ransom Riggs, is a fictional novel that takes place in London. Jacob, Emma, who are the main characters, and the other peculiar children travel all the way to London to save their headmistress Miss Peregrine. Hollows are chasing after them and the kids are looking for help by another ymbryn. They must not just look for help but look out for each other and things that want to capture and kill them. Meeting people on the way they find help. Not everything goes as expected though. When Miss P gets turned back to human, a shock comes.

I would give this book a five star rating because I loved how they incorporated a well known country and city with a fiction book with mythical powers. Anyone who loves fiction with a little bit of mythical powers that almost seem really real would love this because it has an even mix with out going over the top. The theme of this book is to stick as a group and use teamwork to get the job done when in a rough time.

Amazon says "September 3, 1940. Ten peculiar children flee an army of deadly monsters. And only one person can help them—but she’s trapped in the body of a bird. The extraordinary journey that began in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children continues as Jacob Portman and his newfound friends journey to London, the peculiar capital of the world. There, they hope to find a cure for their beloved headmistress, Miss Peregrine. But in this war-torn city, hideous surprises lurk around every corner. And before Jacob can deliver the peculiar children to safety, he must make an important decision about his love for Emma Bloom. Like its predecessor, this second novel in the Peculiar Children series blends thrilling fantasy with vintage photography to create a one-of-a-kind reading experience."
