Asylum by Madeleine Roux
Asylum is very similar to Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, by Ransom Riggs, in that it is a photo-illustrated novel.
Madeleine Roux found a lot of interesting, yet creppy, pictures from actual asylums.
We begin with Dan, and how he is spending his summer at an asylum...what used to be an asylum. The buildings were purchased and turned into a College Prep program. Kids from all over the country attend this program in hopes of furthering their education. When Dan arrives, he finds out that he has to stay in the new dorms...the old psychiatric hospital.
He then starts making a few friends, which is pretty much a first for the socially awkward sixteen year old. Weird things start happening to him, people start dying, and the town is full of strange, fearful people. What could possibly go wrong? Is someone out to get him? Are some students playing pranks on him? Could it be something entirely different?
Let me ask you something, do you believe in ghosts? What about haunted buildings?
Open up the book an find out!
Especially with Halloween just around the corner, you do not want to miss out!
