Once you get in, there's no getting out.
For 16-year-old Dan Crawford, a summer program for gifted students is the chance of a lifetime. No one else at his high school gets his weird fascinations with history and science, but at the New Hampshire College Prep program, such quirks are all but required.
Dan arrives to find 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 it turns out Brookline was no ordinary psych ward. And there are some secrets that refuse to stay buried.
This mind-bending listening experience blurs the lines between past and present, friendship and obsession, genius and insanity.

More like a psychological thriller. Suspenseful. Is it really happening? Is it a dream? It keeps you in question. I think this story would be a quick read and great for high school, or college kids.
Dan's roomate. He went through a transformation of being meek little nerd, to dedicating himself to become stronger.
The conversation that Dan's parents have about him and his past. It makes you wonder.
Just a Northern MN girl in love with books...so much that she shares her passion. Teaching is NOT just a career; it is a choice and calling
I guess I wanted a little more, even knowing it is a young adult read. Going to see how the teens liked it.
This book is so well written and the story is so well plotted that this was a joy to listen to❤ It has a unique vibe with a fantastically unique "worldsetting" I loved the way Madeleine used the Asylum and the way she described it! like the building in itself was a breathing and fully alive being, playing tricks on the characters' minds!
This is the first book of Madeleine Roux's I've read. Beautiful writing, vivid setting, and well-crafted characters and storyline. Although I figured out the mystery pieces in advance, I still enjoyed the journey--waiting to see if I was right. Highly recommended!
I found it slow moving and I did not like the narrators voice.
No I would not because I do not know anyone who would be interested in such a book
No i would not go and see it. Too slow moving
