Hollow City: The Second Novel of Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children

By Ransom Riggs
Age: 10+

This second novel begins in 1940, immediately after the first book ended. Having escaped Miss Peregrine’s island by the skin of their teeth, Jacob and his new friends must travel to London, the peculiar capital of the world. Along the way, they encounter new allies, a menagerie of peculiar animals, and other unexpected surprises.  Jacob and the peculiar children discover new allies, peculiar animals, fight and escape those that are chasing them, and many unexpected surprises. 

I was super excited about reading the second book in this series.  I love the first one.  I don't think it was the same level as the first book.  The story continues and new interesting people are discovered and met.  I love the old vintage photographs of the peculiars.  Some of the unexpected turns/surprises did catch me off guard ( I didn't see them coming).
