Read the sequel to the New York Times #1 best-selling book. The movie adaptation of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is now a major motion picture from visionary director Tim Burton, staring Eva Green, Asa Butterfield, Ella Purnell, Samual L. Jackson, and Judi Dench.

Like its predecessor, this second novel in the Peculiar Children series blends thrilling fantasy with vintage photography to create a one-of-a-kind reading experience.

September 3, 1940. Ten peculiar children flee an army of deadly monsters. And only one person can help them—but she’s trapped in the body of a bird. The extraordinary journey that began in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children continues as Jacob Portman and his newfound friends journey to London, the peculiar capital of the world. There, they hope to find a cure for their beloved headmistress, Miss Peregrine. But in this war-torn city, hideous surprises lurk around every corner. And before Jacob can deliver the peculiar children to safety, he must make an important decision about his love for Emma Bloom.

    The first book was AMAZING! and this book is also AMAZING. However, you have to read the first book first, otherwise it will make zero sense. The book stats right where it left off, which I really like.

      This book was truly amazing! I love how it has so many plot twist. This is a book that will not even make some one who hates reading bored. I 100% recommend, but you need to read the first book first.

            I've decided to read this book as the first one was amazing and I just had to read the sequel. So, I am finished with this book and it is as good as its predecessor. It picks up where it started and Jacob and his "peculiar" friends go try to find Miss Peregrine's friend, Miss Wren, to change Miss Peregrine back to human again. Of course they meet a lot of trouble along their adventure, and Jacob evolves his powers further. I recommend this book for anyone who read the first; it is worth it!

                  Hollow City is an amazing book! It is so well written and extremely entertaining! I would definitely recommend this novel, and also the first book in the series, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children! If you are waiting for the next Harry Potter book, this is a must read!
