Nettalyn Apiston, a girl with hyperacusia, or enhanced hearing, is not an ordinary girl. Well, she's peculiar even for a peculiar. She lives in Miss Grouse's Home for Special Children. There, she doesn't have many friends. When a letter arrives from her older brother Hugh, telling her to come to Cairnholm Island fast, she believes it's a chance for a fresh start. However, she ignores the urgency in the letter, and when she gets there, is completely unprepared for what she will find. I don't own Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, Ransom Riggs does. I own Nettalyn Apiston.
