SANCTUM: ASYLUM SERIES #2, by Madeleine Roux
In this haunting, fast-paced sequel to the New York Times bestselling photo-illustrated novel Asylum, three teens must unlock some long-buried secrets from the past before the past comes back to get them first. Featuring found photographs, many from real vintage carnivals, Sanctum is a mind-bending reading experience that blurs the lines between past and present, genius and insanity, perfect for fans of the small hit Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.
Dan, Abby and Jordan remain traumatized by the summer they shared in the Brookline Dorm, previously the Brookline Asylum. Much as they'd love to move on, someone is determined to keep the terror alive. Mysterious photos of an old-timey carnival and GPS coordinates to abandon houses near the Brookline Dorm are sent to the teens with no note and no name. Forsaking their plan to never go back, the teens return to New Hampshire College under the guise of a weekend for prospective students. There they realize that the carnival from the photos is not only real, it's here on campus for the first time in many years.
Sneaking away from sample classes and college parties, Dan and his friends lead a tour of their own — one through the abandoned houses and hidden places of a surrounding town. Camford is hiding a terrible past, and the truth behind Dan's connection to the asylum's evil warden is more terrifying than Dan ever imagined.
