If you haven’t been able to tell, I’m rather excited about our Overdrive eBooks and eAudioBooks launch!

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children had me up all night as I flipped through, completely dismissing my 6 A.M. alarm, to follow Jacob on his quest to make sense of his grandfather’s childhood stories and photos… And, yes, it’s spooky (hence the cover) but it’s also fantastically swimming in the whimsy of peculiarity. Does that make any sense? Probably not so here’s Overdrive’s summary:
“A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. And a strange collection of very curious photographs. It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets 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. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children who once lived here–one of whom was his own grandfather–were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a desolate island for good reason. And somehow–impossible though it seems–they may still be alive” Overdrive Description.
I promise you it’s not a read to miss!
