SynopsisWhy I'm Waiting
Asylum is a thrilling and creepy photo-novel perfect for fans of the New York Times bestseller Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.
For sixteen-year-old Dan Crawford, New Hampshire College Prep is more than a summer program--it's a lifeline. An outcast at his high school, Dan is excited to finally make some friends in his last summer before college. But when he arrives at the program, Dan learns that his dorm for the summer used to be 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, explore the hidden recesses of their creepy summer home, they soon discover it's no coincidence that the three of them ended up here. Because the asylum holds the key to a terrifying past. And there are some secrets that refuse to stay buried.
Featuring found photos of unsettling history and real abandoned asylums and filled with chilling mystery and page-turning suspense, Madeleine Roux's teen debut, Asylum, is a horror story that treads the line between genius and insanity. (Goodreads)
Featuring found photos of unsettling history and real abandoned asylums...count me in! I loved how Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children had creepy photos throughout the book. It gave me goosebumps! Now, this book definitely sounds like a spooky treat, and I have always been morbidly fascinated with insane asylums. Abnormal Psychology was one of my favorite classes in college. What can I say? I find the brain fascinating. Though dissecting a cow eye did not make my day.
Asylum seems to have all the ingredients that make a Courtney book! Suspense, horror, insane people...I cannot wait!
