Teaser Tuesday #1: Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB of Should be Reading.

Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children
Ransom Riggs
(Summary from Goodreads.com)

A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of very curious photographs. Fiction is based on real black and white photographs. The death of grandfather Abe sends 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, and explores abandoned bedrooms and hallways. The children may still live.

"There was no moon and no movement but our own, and yet somehow I knew just where to raise my flashlight and just where to aim it, and for an instant in that narrow cut of light I saw a face that seemed to have been transplanted directly from the nightmares of my childhood. It stared back with eyes that swam in dark liquid, furrowed trenches of carbon-black flesh loose on it's hunched frame, it's mouth hinged open grotesquely so that a mass of long eel-like tongues could wriggle out." - pg 33
