Hollow City by Ransom Riggs

Reviewed by: Henry, age 13

This book is a good read with spooky photographs here and there. It was one of those books I couldn't put down. (Partly because every time I did, Kimball stole it.)

Genre: Fiction

Time Period: World War II

Jacob and his newfound friends are trying to fix Miss Peregrine, who is stuck in bird form. Unfortunately, they are also on the run. The wights are trying as hard as they can to stop them. But Jacob is having so moral conflict. Does he belong with his family, or the other peculiars. The window of opportunity for him to go back is closing.

Themes: Your differences make you special, family.

Recommended Age: 12 and up

Full Disclosure:
Frequent swearing (Less than first book.), includes romance, death, photos (no nudity or immodesty, but some of them are creepy enough to give you nightmares!) Moms: I went through with a black pencil and scribbled over the swearing, which I recommend you do before your kids read it!

Rating: 3.5 stars, 4 with the language edited

Others in series: Miss Peregrine's home for Peculiar Children, Library of Souls
