Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children was the surprise best seller of 2011—an unprecedented mix of YA fantasy and vintage photography that enthralled readers and critics alike. Publishers Weekly called it “an enjoyable, eccentric read, distinguished by well-developed characters, a believable Welsh setting, and some very creepy monsters.”
This second novel begins in 1940, immediately after the first book ended. Having escaped Miss Peregrine’s island by the skin of their teeth, Jacob and his new friends must journey to London, the peculiar capital of the world. Along the way, they encounter new allies, a menagerie of peculiar animals, and other unexpected surprises.
Complete with dozens of newly discovered (and thoroughly mesmerizing) vintage photographs, this new adventure will delight readers of all ages.
OH MY GOSH. This book is amazingly even better then the first one, which is hard to beat but it has. I seriously read this book in like a day. Like you can't ever put it down. I HAD to read it, i had to know what happened next! I wasn't disappointed in the least, amazingly creepy can't-believe-they-are-real pictures throughout the book that are incorporated into the story it makes for one heck of a ride. I loved Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children and this one a great second book in the series, the third one is in the makings, i hope it comes out soon. I love the plot and all the twisted and turns. There are so many moments you say i can't believe it and the surprises never end! I seriously recommend Hollow City and the first book, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. Both are amazing peculiar reads.
