Featuring found photographs from real abandoned asylums, Madeleine Roux's New York Times bestselling novel Asylum, which Publishers Weekly called "a strong YA debut," is a mind-bending reading experience that treads the line between genius and insanity.

For sixteen-year-old Dan Crawford, a summer program for gifted students is more than a gift-it's a lifeline. No one else at his high school gets his weird academic fixations, but at the New Hampshire College Prep program, such quirks are practically required.

When Dan arrives, he finds that students will be staying in the crumbling Brookline dorm-formerly a psychiatric hospital. As he 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 the teens to the asylum's dark past. Because it turns out Brookline was no ordinary psych ward. And there are some secrets that refuse to stay buried.

With creepy found photographs from real abandoned asylums, Asylum is an unforgettable journey into the dark recesses of the mind, blurring the lines between past and present, friendship and obsession, genius and insanity.
