"Every town has its share of secrets. And when whispered by children in the dead of night, some secrets become stories. They percolate and brew and change. Sometimes, under special circumstances, the stories become legends, destined to survive even as the children who share them grow up and move on." 

"We ask our brain to stop worrying, stop obsessing, stop dreaming the same scary dreams again and again. But our brain rarely takes requests."

A chill wrapped Neil's body, head to toe. "Hear what?"

"Taking in the vista, Neil was overwhelmed with a sudden sadness. People had died here. And for the people who had lived, life certainly hadn’t been easy – neither inside nor outside of these walls. He had come here hoping to escape from his tangled thoughts, but found himself twisted in new ones."


Does an abandoned asylum hold the key to a frightful haunting?

Everyone's heard the stories about Graylock Hall.

It was meant to be a place of healing - a hospital where children and teenagers with mental disorders would be cared for and perhaps even cured. But something went wrong. Several young patients died under mysterious circumstances. Eventually, the hospital was shut down, the building abandoned and left to rot deep in the woods.

As the new kid in town, Neil Cady wants to see Graylock for himself. Especially since rumor has it that the building is haunted. He's got fresh batteries in his flashlight, a camera to document the adventure, and a new best friend watching his back.

Neil might think he's prepared for what he'll find in the dark and decrepit asylum. But he's certainly not prepared for what follows him home. . . .

  1. That sounds so creepy! I'd probably love to read it. I like books that creep me out. I would not visit a haunted place though, I'd be too scared. haha

    1. Thank you for your comment!

      I just finished it and it was pretty good! It reminded me a little bit of the Goosebumps series, which I ADORED as a kid, but definitely a lot creepier.
