“Just because they knew it was lost didn’t mean they knew how to let it go.”

“‘How are you?’ She asked. It was a question that would’ve required some college-level math and about an hour of discussion to answer. I felt a hundred conflicting things, the great bulk of which canceled out equal cold and tired and not particularly interested in talking. So I said, ‘I’m fine‘”

“What felt like an obligation now had been a promise back then.”

“My question hadn’t been about logistics. I had meant, simply: How could I leave you?”

“I was here for a reason. There was something I was meant not simply to be but to do— and it wasn’t to run or hide or give up the minute things seemed terrifying and impossible.”

“There was something new happening, a wheel inside my heart I’d never noticed before, and it was spinning so fast it made me dizzy.”

“I wondered if this strange, sweet pain was love.”

“–because from the day I met Emma I’d known I’d wanted to be part of any world she belonged to. Did that make me crazy? Or my heart too easily conquered?”

“You give me strength I didn’t know I had.”

“Don’t throw your life away because of a few jokes made at your expense.”

“Her words came all in a rush, like they were a painful thing she’d been carrying a long time, and it was a relief to finally be rid of them.”

“You didn’t make me stay. I stayed because I wanted to– and because what I feel for you is as real as anything I’ve ever felt.

“I laughed a little, because if I hadn’t, I might’ve started crying.”


“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. 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.”
