Asylum by Madeline Roux

Asylum, by Madeline Roux, is a wonderfully scary book. Dan, Abby, and Jordan meet each other at a summer program at New Hampshire College, but unfortunately, the dorms are being redone. The replacement dorms are in an old, abandoned asylum called Brookline. Abby decides to go exploring in the closed off main office and drags the boys with her. This is where the mystery starts to unfold. What happens next I shall not tell you, you must read the book to find out.


I guarantee that you will love the photos the author includes. They add a more realistic feel to the book. The photos make the book scarier just like Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. If you love scary mystery books you will love this book.  (This book is not in our school library.  It is recommended for grades 7-10, but if you check with your parents you can get it at the public library.)

    1. For me this Asylum isn't too scary but it may be for others. You may want to read part of the book if you're unsure about it.

    1. Very funny "Anonymous". Yes, I do think this book is superior and yes, I do have connections to this book. I have read a similar book called Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children and the photos were so realistic you knew what each character looked like and where they were.
