Publisher Description

Madeleine Roux's New York Times bestselling Asylum is a thrilling and creepy photo-illustrated novel that Publishers Weekly called "a strong YA debut that reveals the enduring impact of buried trauma on a place."

For sixteen-year-old Dan Crawford, the New Hampshire College Prep program is the chance of a lifetime. Except that when Dan arrives, he finds that the usual summer housing has been closed, forcing students to stay in the crumbling Brookline Dorm. The dorm was formerly a sanatorium, more commonly known as an asylum. And not just any asylum—a last resort for the criminally insane.

As Dan and his new friends Abby and Jordan start exploring Brookline's twisty halls and hidden basement, they uncover disturbing secrets about what really went on at Brookline . . . secrets that link Dan and his friends to the asylum's dark past. Because Brookline was no ordinary asylum, and there are some secrets that refuse to stay buried.

Featuring found photographs from real asylums and filled with chilling mystery and page-turning suspense, Asylum is a horror story that treads the line between genius and insanity, perfect for fans of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.

Don't miss any of the books in the Asylum series, or Madeleine Roux's shivery fantasy series, House of Furies!

Good Teen Mystery

I bought this book on a whim. I needed a quick free reading book for class and I was very happy! It’s a good book and combines mystery with teen drama very well.

MIN YOONGI IS MY HUSBAND ,

INTENSE AND FUN

If you love a mystery and a story that doesn’t make sense at first but then takes an unexpected turn that suddenly brings realization to your head then I would read this! It’s really fun and intense, but if you get scared easily, or hate horror or scary things then I wouldn’t read it since it has those categories in it. Overall I’m a person with very high expectations when it comes to books and this one went past my expectations which suprise me but I loved it since it’s been awhile since I’ve read a book that wouldn’t make me sleep. If you’ve read Miss Peregrines Home got Peculiar Children and liked that book I would read this one because it’s similar.
