A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of very curious photographs. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets 16-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.

The story started out great, but kind of fizzled out for me halfway through the book... The story line became predictable and monotonous. I finished, but definitely won't be reading the following books in the trilogy.

I purchased this books because it was suggested to me based on how much I enjoyed Tina Fey's "Bossy Pants". I usually love Amy Poehler, but I just couldn't bring myself to want to listen or finish this audio book.
