Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

And in the middle of the children, like the object of some arcane ritual, there hovered a bomb, its downward-facing tip seemingly balanced on Adam’s outstretched finger. Then, like a movie that burns in the projector while you’re watching it, a bloom of hot and perfect whiteness spread out before me and swallowed everything.

    That Miss Peregrine book is spooky. Is this the one with really scarey pictures in it?

      Sandy – yes, it has pictures – no scary so much as creepy and odd and atmospheric. I’m reading it aloud with Natalie, and we’re both enjoying it!
