Miss Peregrine et les enfants particuliers by Ransom Riggs,Cassandra Jean,Sidonie Van Den Dries Summary

Fils unique, destiné à reprendre la pharmacie de ses parents, ado indolent et sans passion... Jacob mène une vie monotone. Son grand-père lui raconte depuis qu'il est petit des histoires merveilleuses : un orphelinat abrite sur une île mystérieuse des enfants aux talents extraordinaires... Même si Jacob a parfois eu envie d'y croire, il est lucide: le vieil homme n'a plus toute sa tête. Mais, un jour, Grand-Père n'est pas dans sa maison. Jacob finit par le retrouver dans le jardin, une horrible blessure au ventre. Il a été attaqué par une créature de cauchemar aux griffes comme des lames, la bouche emplie de tentacules : un « creux ». Bien sur, Jacob croit d'abord à une hallucination. Il prend des médicaments, voit un psychologue, tente d'oublier... sans succès. Alors il prend une décision : il va partir à la recherche de l'île de son grand-père. Qui sait s'il pourra y trouver des indices ? Et, peut-être, des gens qui l'auront connu ? Sans le savoir, le jeune homme vient de mettre le doigt dans l'engrenage. Il va découvrir la lutte sans merci que les estres et les creux livrent aux enfants particuliers. Car les enfants particuliers existent bien, à l'abri d'une boucle temporelle ! Et, à leur tête, la délicieuse Miss Peregrine veille sur eux... Impossible de décrire le charme de cette histoire parue en 2012 aux éditions Bayard sous forme de roman. Il émane de personnages bien troussés, de vieilles photos de «freaks» parfois truquées, de scènes d'action remarquables et du trait clair et sensible de la dessinatrice... Lisez, on vous dit !

Following his grandfather's death - a scene Jacob literally couldn't believe with his own eyes - the sixteen-year-old boy embarks on a mission to disentangle fact from fiction in his grandfather's tall tales.

L'asile by Madeleine Roux Summary

Pour Dan Crawford, un ado de seize ans, un programme estival pour étudiants doués représente la chance d’une vie. Personne d’autre à son école ne comprend sa fascination étrange pour l’histoire et la science, mais au sein du programme préparatoire du Collège du New Hampshire, ces excentricités sont pratiquement des prérequis. À son arrivée, Dan apprend que la résidence estivale habituelle a fermé ses portes, les étudiants à demeurer dans un édifice qui tombe en ruines, Brookline — un ancien hôpital psychiatrique. À mesure que Dan et ses deux nouveaux amis, Abby et Jordan, explorent les couloirs sinueux et le soussol dissimulé de Brookline, ils découvrent des secrets troublants sur les événements survenus entre ses murs... Des secrets qui lient Dan et ses amis au passé sombre de l’asile. Car Brookline n’était pas un hôpital psychiatrique ordinaire. Et certains refusent de demeurer enfouis.
