The kids in the Teen Book Club asked for a scary book that wouldn't scare them. No dolls, no clowns, etc. This fit the request. It was creepy and had a mystery to it.
A group of teens has come to the college in NH for college prep. They are to live in the dorms (what used to by the asylum) for the 5 weeks while attending different classes every day. On the first day, Dan Crawford, meets his roommate, Felix, and Abby and Jordan. Abby, Jordan, and Dan become friends, to the point of being called the Hydra by a professor, but at the end of a week, their friendship has hit some bumps. They separate the next week and rarely come together. They are dealing with their own issues (Jordan is gay and has to stay in the closet, Abby's parents are going through problems and she just wants to find her aunt and Dan has moments where he doesn't remember things, blanks in his memory). They all explore the rooms that are supposed to be off-limits. After their first trip into those rooms, they start to have dreams and the dreams cause them to change. They explore the basement areas a few times, together and alone. Things start to happen and they are all beginning to have issues.
Really good suspenseful book and I do recommend it. It was a very fast read, for my youngest and I. The older girls are dragging on it as the suspense builds and creeps them a little more.
