asylumLizzy shares this review:

For sixteen-year-old Dan Crawford, the New Hampshire College Prep program is the chance of a lifetime. Except that when Dan arrives, he finds that the usual summer housing has been closed, 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 Dan and his friends to the asylum’s dark past. Because Brookline was no ordinary mental hospital, and there are some secrets that refuse to stay buried. –Book Summary from

Asylum is a thriller unlike anything else. The book draws you in with its real life photographs and plot. The setting, an old asylum turned into a dorm, is perfectly used. The characters change throughout the book, making your mind even more curious. The plot moves through visions to murder. The reader feels the emotions each character is feeling. Beware! This book is hard to put down.
