Teaser Tuesday (29): Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read    
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children
by Ransom Riggs
published June 7, 2011

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (Miss Peregrine, #1)
Teaser from page 57:

Emerson. The letter.

I felt the blood drain out from my face. My mother leaned toward me and in a tense whisper asked if I needed a drink of water, which was Mom-speak for keep it together, people are staring. I said, "I feel a little, uh..." and then, with one hand over my stomach, I bolted to my room.

Book Blurb:

A horrific family tragedy sends Jacob 16 to a remote island off Wales, to the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, where he finds unusual old photographs. The children, one his grandfather, were more than peculiar, perhaps dangerous, quarantined for good reason - and maybe still alive.

  4. Gosh, what an awful moment!

  5. I've heard a lot about this book, and I'm looking forward to reading it. The title alone is a grabber, and your Teaser makes me wonder what could be in that letter!
    My Teaser is from REFLECTIONS OF MAMIE.

  6. Like Sandra, I've heard a lot about this one, and every teaser I read seems to intrigue me more. Mine: The Widow
