A spine-tingling ghost story illustrated with an unprecedented mix of staged photography and genuine Victorian-era photography, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is an unprecedented new kind of reading experience-perfect for adults, teens, and anyone who enjoys a good creepfest.

A mysterious island shrouded in fog. An abandoned orphanage crawling with spiders and rats. A locked trunk filled with crumbling 19th-century photographs and files. And one very curious teenager with a digital camera and plenty of free time on his hands.

These are the elements of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, a ground¬breaking crossover novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling, chilling reading experience.

As our story opens, a teenage boy known only as "J" finds himself stuck on a remote island off the coast of Wales while his architect-father works with local construction crews to develop a giant seaside resort. Bored, lonely, and armed with a digital camera, J sets off to explore the island, and he reports his findings in a series of letters to his long-distance girlfriend, M. (This island is so remote, it doesn't even have Internet or phone service.)

One of the few existing buildings on the island is Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. As J explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that Miss Peregrine's children were more than just peculiar.

They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow-even though it seems impossible-they just might still be living there.

As J unravels the secrets of Miss Peregrine's Home, he learns that some secrets are not meant to be shared.
