Asylum

by Madeleine Roux
Release date: August 19, 2013
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: horror, young adult

For sixteen-year-old Dan Crawford, a summer program for gifted students is more than a gift — it’s a lifeline. No one else at his high school gets his weird academic fixations, but at the New Hampshire College Prep program, such quirks are practically required.

Dan arrives to find that the usual summer housing has been quarantined, forcing students to stay in the crumbling Brookline dorm — formerly a psychiatric hospital. 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 here... secrets that link the teens to the asylum’s dark past. Because it turns out Brookline was no ordinary psych ward. And there are some secrets that refuse to stay buried.

With haunting photographs and letters throughout, Asylum is an unforgettable journey into the dark recesses of the mind, blurring the lines between past and present, friendship and obsession, genius and insanity.
