Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs.
This event was important because Jacob find his grandfather dead in the woods. Jacob was very close to his grandfather. This is also the point in the book where Jacob first sees the monsters that hunt and kill peculiar children. When Jacob sees the monster, he knows his grandfather wasn’t lying about his past, but, as time goes on, Jacob gets convinced by his parents and therapist that he imagined the monster. Jacob also hears his grandfather’s last words and clues that leads him to the peculiar children at this time.
This event was important because it is the first time that Jacob goes into the loop. Jacob sees a girl and chases her into a bog. The girl goes into a hole in the rock in the bog, and Jacob follows. Jacob find himself in the past after he passes through the hole in the rock. Jacob meets the peculiar children and Miss Peregrine after entering the loop. He also learns about the monsters, hollows, and about his peculiarity after entering the loop.
This event is important because a hollow is after the peculiar children. Miss Peregrine’s children have been safe inside their loop for a long time, but a hollow is now on the island. Jacob and a few of the other peculiar children leave the loop to find Jacob’s father and stop him from getting hurt. The wight, a human-ish version of a hollow, and a hollow are waiting for the children. I am to the point in the book where the children are running through the village in the present away from the hollow.
I predict that Jacob will end of staying with the peculiar children in Miss Peregrine’s home. Jacob no longer has a home in the present, and he feels the need to protect the peculiar children. Jacob has finally realized that there are extraordinary things in the world, and he wants to live in the peculiar world. The children will escape or kill the hollow and return to the loop. I predict that the book will end happily; however, I do know that there are other books in the series, so I might be wrong about the ending. This is an awesome book!
