Description

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. . . . Scary, suspenseful, and surprising, Dan Poblocki's latest ghost story will keep you turning pages deep into the dead of night.show more

Old-school, John Saul-style horror." -- "Kirkus Reviews" "Fun and creepy in all the good ways." -- "VOYA" Praise for "The Haunting of Gabriel Ashe" A YALSA Best Fiction for Young Adults selection A Junior Library Guild selection "The social dramas mesh well with the supernatural elements... Poblocki creates a real sense of suspense." -- "Booklist" "Poblocki creates danger by not pulling punches. An atmospheric, creepy ghost story best read at night." -- "Kirkus Reviews" Praise for "The Ghost of Graylock" A YALSA Best Fiction for Young Adults selection A Junior Library Guild selection "Poblocki misses nary a horror-story trope as he propels his cast through one terrifying incident after another to, at last, a climactic flight. Definitely a story to be read by flashlight." -- "Booklist" "Poblocki is in his element with eerie happenings and atmospheric settings. Short chapters with cliff-hanger endings and several twists and turns in the plot will ensure that the pages turn quickly. Give this book to Mary Downing Hahn fans and others who enjoy spine-tingling mysteries." -- "School Library Journal" "show more
