Product description

Bone-chilling, sumptuous, magical: a glorious celebration of weird pride. An empty house. An eerie secret. Strange kids: long gone or still alive? It’s the revenge of the freaks! This bizarre fantasy (complete with vintage photos) has made all those boring ‘normal’ books in the stores feel very sorry for themselves. Seriously: 52 non-stop weeks on the New York Times bestseller list? A brand-new Tim Burton movie? Who knew Peculiar could ever be this out and proud! And here’s where it all started: on a remote island off the coast of Wales. When Jacob finds the crumbling ruins of a Home for Peculiar Children, it becomes clear that these kids were more than slightly off-the-wall. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for a good reason. And – however impossible it seems – they might still be alive...

  • The phenomenally successful New York Times bestseller
  • A spine-tingling fantasy with haunting vintage photos
  • Now a major film directed by the legendary Tim Burton
  • “Tense, moving, and wondrously strange” – John Green

This book contains language that may be unsuitable for younger readers.
