This creepy, but enjoyable, book is about 16 year old Daniel Crawford. It is set at a summer college prep program in New Hampshire. The normal summer housing is closed, so the students are staying at the old Brookline Dorm. This dorm is not like any ordinary dorm, as it used to be an asylum. When Dan and his friends start explore the forbidden basement, they discover secrets from the asylum's dark past that the town wishes to forget about. They reveal connections linking Dan and others to the activities that went on there years ago. From disappearing emails, to the attacks that continue to happen, Dan and his friends must get to the bottom of what twisted things really happened below the psychiatric hospital. Full of photos from asylums, you will be pulled into this gripping novel.

Dan seeks to solve the mysteries of Brooline. Dan soon finds out about mysterious ties he has with the asylum. Dan becomes friends with Abby, a girl with her own mysterious ties to Brookline, Jordan a guy with his own odd quirks, and together the three investigate things that clearly should be left alone, including the forbidden areas of the building, to which Dan can't stop going to.
