Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children #1), Books for Boys Review

Introduction

Title: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children #1)
Author: Ransom Riggs
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Release Date: June 7, 2011
Synopsis (from Amazon):

A mysterious island.

An abandoned orphanage.

A strange collection of very curious photographs.

It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the 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—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.

A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.

Why I Think Boys May Enjoy This

Well, it’s got super-powered kids, deadly bad guys, and a cool Camp Half-Blood/Hogwartz/Xavier School for the Gifted thing going on, but still has its very own uniqueness that makes it cool. There are clearly a bunch of “special kids go to a special school” style of stories out there, but there are some amazing facets to Miss Peregrine that set this book apart from the others. First, the unique inclusion of the pictures, supposedly of the characters in the story, are quite awesome. One of the few times I was sad to be listening to the audiobook (although, thankfully, I had a copy of the paperback as well so I was able to find the pictures to look at there).

The characters are perfectly set to an “older” age group (well, Jacob at least, was–as we learn, many of the children are hardly the ages they appear) and it makes their trek (especially as the series continues past the first book) more believable and acceptable. The entire concept of time loops and frozen moments is maybe one of the coolest parts of the entire series.

The characters are really well fleshed out and diverse, which is probably the strongest aspect of the book. Riggs does an amazing job of working with “children” that are young in appearance but much, much older in actual age. This is probably the part that separates this series apart from the aforementioned “kid goes to a magical school” concepts I mentioned above. I legitimately cared about all the other characters, especially Enoch and Bronwyn. Enoch’s complexity in particular was one that I loved. A kid with the power to raise the dead is pretty dark but it’s handled quite well for a book appropriate to a MG/YA audience.

All in all, it was a fantastic book and I gobbled up the entire series quickly.

Content/Appropriateness

There is nothing content-inappropriate here. Some violence including death but nothing majorly gory or bloody. The romantic elements (which are minimal) are kept to a PG rating.
