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.


I gave this book a 3 Star Review

Why the 3 star rating. I thought it would be a scary creepy read but honestly it wasn't. I did like the black and white photo's that were in the book. Not sure if I will read the rest of the series though.

Dan is a 16 yr old that went to a summer school is a New Hampshire College Prep School. The school just happens to be an old Asylum. Dan and a couple of his fellow students discover that there is just more to the old Asylum than what they first saw. Seems like a few of the students had relatives that had something to do with the place years ago.
