Book Review of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children, Bk 1)

A gripping read. Jacob grows up with his grandfather telling him 'fairy stories' and showing him 'fake' snapshots of fantastical persons...an invisible boy, a flying girl, a boy who has bees living inside him. Jacob, and his family too, discount these as ramblings, moreso as the grandfather ages. Then the grandfather dies, and the circumstances involved in and following his death send Jacob on an adventure where nothing is as it seems, and where the benign can kill you.

I read this in a little over an hour. Literally could not put it down. The vintage photos included in the text add to the creepy factor considerably.
