Jacob goes to the island to look for Miss Peregrine and the kids. His father goes with him. Jacob goes and finds the big house or the orphanage and finds a big chest of pictures. He finds a way to open the chest, and when he does it takes him back in time. Read the book to find out what happens to Jacob as he meets Miss Peregrine and the other orphan kids.


My favorite quote from the book is; "Scream and i'll cut you," Came a voice. Keeping a blade to my neck, my assailant stepped around to face me" (Riggs 131). This is a strong example of the element suspense, because it makes the reader wonder who the assailant is. Also, it makes the reader want to keep reading.

Quote from reviewer; " A tense, moving, and wondrously strange first novel. The photographs and test work together brilliantly to create an unforgettable story." -John Green, author of The Fault in Our Stars
