When a horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, he discovers the crumbling Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores the abandoned mansion, he wonders if the children who once lived here, including his own grandfather, were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous.
