Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, by Ransom Riggs

Good for: While it's on a lot of "young adult" book lists, I'm not really sure why. It didn't read as particularly "young adult" to me. I would recommend this for any fans of mysteries and dark fantasy. Some elements reminded me of Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere, or something by China Miéville.
