I have read a brilliant book called (Miss Peregrin's Home For Peculiar Children) By Ransom Riggs (A Cool Name!!) It was brilliant, its kind of a children/teen book but I got alot of enjoyment out of it, It kinda reminded me of the TV series (Goodnoght Sweetheart) The show about the time traveller! Its cool it had danger, action, time loops, love and really interesting charactors with powers and a kinda monster which is a bit original! Its also beautifully illustrated with photography which I found really interesting!
Anyway if you like darren shan but with less gore and horror then this book is for you!!
