Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, Ransom Riggs
This is a really great and suspenseful book, if a bit creepy. Jacob, a Polish boy (ha ha) is saddened by the death of his beloved grandfather, who used to tell him strange stories. He travels to a strange island to try and discover his grandfather's secrets. He meets "peculiar" children who are living in a time loop on the island, and Ms. Peregrin their protector. You'll see if you read it. I would definitely recommend this book to someone who's been searching for a good fantasy and adventure. It's the best fantasy/supernatural that I've read in quite a while. And now it's in the NOVA library! 5 stars.
Also, thanks to Sami for recommending it in her book talk.
