What if you encountered something that wasn’t what it seemed? When Jacob’s grandfather suddenly dies, he is left with a confusing set of last words that lead him to an old World War II orphanage on a dreary-looking island in search for answers. However, everything Jacob’s grandfather ever told him about monsters, his family of orphans on the island, and sweet Miss Peregrine wasn’t exactly the truth, but it wasn’t exactly a lie either. Expecting a well-preserved orphanage and a sweet old lady to talk to, Jacob instead finds an empty, broken down house and an island of rude, unwilling civilians to ask for help. Relying on only a couple of clues, Jacob must explore the chilling remains of the orphanage for answers. What did Jacob’s grandfather mean by his last words? And what was the true story of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children?
