Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, by Ransom Riggs

I primarily read this book for my own enjoyment. It was easy and fun, which was exactly what I hoped it would be. I’m not going to write a detailed summary or analysis of this book, because in my opinion, it is best if simply enjoyed. But how would I summarize this novel in one to two sentences? “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” is a fantasy novel, in which the protagonist discovers an alternative world that is stuck looping through the same day in history during WWII. Living in the “time loop” are Miss Peregrine, who is an ymbryne capable of manipulating time, and her wards, whom are children with unusual abilities, including levitation, super-strength, fire-taming, invisibility, spotting invisible creatures, and more. Many time loops exist in various parts of the world, looping on different days in history, in which peculiar individuals hide from the antagonists, the wights and hollowgasts, that are intent on using the peculiars for their own crooked ambitions.
