Jacob is our main character. And he was from the present day. But stumbled into what is called a "loop" which is kind of a time loop, that was used by children that were called peculiar. The one that was near where his grandfather lived, and when he did that, he ended up getting involved with the group of children that were with Miss Peregrine. And they are now being hunted by another form of peculiars, called wights. These wights have captured all the other headmistresses like Miss Peregrine. They were even able to get her, until Jacob and his friends got her back. But now they can't seem to get her to turn back from a bird. So they journey to London to try to get help. They must deal not only with the dangerous wights, but also monsters called hollows, and other people that might be out to get them, as well as World War II that is going on at the time.
As with the first book there are photographs worked in. This time there are many that aren't as peculiar as the last book, but they fit in mostly with the story. And we are left at the end hanging a bit, so that now I'm ready to read on in the next book. Which I have no idea when it will come out. One really cool thing though, is that supposedly Tim Burton might be making a movie of the first book, according to the author when I saw him in January. I can think of no one else that would be as perfect to do this. So I recommend this to those who read the first book and were intrigued with the characters and keeping up with their adventures.
