Title: Asylum
   Author: Madeleine Roux
   Release Date: August 20th, 2013

     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.


My Stance:

     I didn't really know about this book, it wasn't until I was looking through the profiles of a few friends of mine on Goodreads, that I found this book. I wasn't sure what to think at first, but the cover is what pulled me in. It reminded me of Gretchen McNeil's Ten and while the book has the sort of air about it, I have my worries about holding that sort of expectation. Yet, there is something about this book that gives me the chills and leaves me anxiously awaiting the book!

     I am curious what Asylum brings, will it be more a sci-fi novel or a thriller/horror. As well, Dan and his friends find themselves in college. Yet their dorm isn't what they thought it would be like, it's a converted sanatorium. I wouldn't want to know that sort of information about where I was sleeping. It would make me paranoid that there was something still there, or that something was still going on. I will admit I am a bit paranoid about that sort of paranormal stuff. What happens though when that may be real, and how will Dan and his friends, Abby and Jordan, handle that paranormal haunting.
