3-Sentence Summary: Young Jacob grew up believing in the stories that his grandfather told him about “the monsters” and about living in a home with “peculiar” children who could do amazing things. Fifteen years old now, Jacob doesn’t believe in these “fairy tales” anymore. But after a tragedy befalls his grandfather, Jacob learns that his grandfather’s stories maybe not be just stories after all.
Six-word Review: Boy finds peculiar children, faces danger.
I began reading this book because…I had been searching for good book to read online and I came across this. I decided to read it because everyone said it was good.
I kept reading because…It had such great use of language and there was tragedy that made me want to keep on reading.
I couldn’t get enough of…The imagery that was put into my head as I kept on reading. There was also some mystery and plot twists in this that I loved. There wasn’t anything I didn’t like about this book.
If the main character was in a high school yearbook they would be voted most like to…uncover strange secrets about his grandfather and meet peculiar children.
If the main character was stuck on a deserted island..he would find a boat. 😉
SUCH A GREAT FLIPPIN’ BOOK.
