The asylum holds the key to a terrifying past...A thrilling creepy photo-novel, perfect for fans of the New York Times bestseller Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.
For sixteen-year-old outcast Dan Crawford, the summer program at New Hampshire College Prep is a lifeline.
Finally, a chance to make some friends before college.
Even if that means staying in a dorm that used to be a old asylum.
Soon Dan's hanging out with Abby and Jordan, and summer is looking up.
But then he learns that the asylum was not just any sanatorium - it was a last resort for the criminally insane.
As Dan, Abby and Jordan explore the hidden recesses of their creepy summer home, they discover it's no coincidence that the three of them ended up here. And that some secrets refuse to stay buried...Featuring unsettling found photos of real abandoned asylums and filled with chilling mystery and page-turning suspense, Madeleine Roux's teen horror debut ASYLUM treads the line between genius and insanity.

Review by Tarklovishki
No.<br/><br/><b>Twelve hours later...</b><br/><br/>Okay, what the hell was that? When I bought this book, I expected to be drawn in and scared. What I didn't expect was for it to be a really cheap knock-off of <i>Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children</i>.<br/><br/>The plot was generic and boring. The characters were like cardboard cut-outs. I didn't like one bit of this - except for maybe the pictures. That's it. The pictures. <br/><br/>Honestly, I really wish I'd listened to the people who gave this book a negative review/rating. I would have saved myself some money.
