>>The second installment in the “Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children” series by Ransom Riggs “Hollow City” finally came out on Jan. 14 and has managed to be just as successful, if not more, than the first book. “Hollow City” picks up exactly where the first one left off, with hero Jacob and his unusual friends sailing into the unknown, desperate to save their headmistress. Once again, Riggs’ strange characters (even the frustrating Enoch) charm readers as much as the vintage photos in the book haunt them, and the adventure the peculiar children weave their way through this time is more heart-stopping and fantastic than the previous one. Readers will root for Jacob and be frustrated with him as he struggles to accept who he is and find his place in this new strange world he is in. If he fails to accept his identity, it could cost him his new friends. The last chapter will stun fans, but they need not worry. Reportedly, Riggs is working on the third installment.
