Jacob Portman returns to Florida and “normal” life after facing death and saving his fellow peculiars from annihilation. Once again a freak to his family and school, he’s overjoyed when Miss Peregrine herself, along with Emma and the rest of his peculiar friends, show up at his house. But his excitement is soon tempered when he realizes that his beloved grandfather Abe, a legend to peculiars, may have had a darker side. At the same time, the ymbryne council in the U.K. seems to be abusing its authority while rebuilding their peculiar world. Jacob’s impetuousness leads to headstrong actions that have grave consequences for peculiars all over the world. The newest chapter of the Miss Peregrine story, enhanced with vintage photographs as always, is as exciting as the first three and leaves readers with tantalizing clues about the next Peculiar adventure.

Having defeated the monstrous threat that nearly destroyed the peculiar world, Jacob Portman is back where his story began, in Florida. Except now Miss Peregrine, Emma, and their peculiar friends are with him, and doing their best to blend in. But carefree days of beach visits and normalling lessons are soon interrupted by a discovery—a subterranean bunker that belonged to Jacob’s grandfather, Abe.
Clues to Abe’s double-life as a peculiar operative start to emerge, secrets long hidden in plain sight. And Jacob begins to learn about the dangerous legacy he has inherited—truths that were part of him long before he walked into Miss Peregrine’s time loop.
Now, the stakes are higher than ever as Jacob and his friends are thrust into the untamed landscape of American peculiardom—a world with few ymbrynes, or rules—that none of them understand. New wonders, and dangers, await in this brilliant next chapter for Miss Peregrine’s peculiar children. Their story is again illustrated by haunting vintage photographs, now with the striking addition of full-color images interspersed throughout for this all-new, multi-era American adventure.
