Book 70: Sanctum

Sanctum, by Madeleine Roux

This book is the sequel to Asylum, which our PAL had not read. You don't need to read the first book to understand everything that goes on in this book, thankfully.

Sanctum is illustrated with real carnival photographs, not ones taken for this book. Since we had an ARC the photos were grainy but you could see enough to tell they were interesting.

Three about-to-apply-to-college teens return to the scene of a big-time summer trauma because a nutso fellow trauma victim said they needed to go back. Since the three teens are having nightmares (understandably, once you find out what happened). Naturally the main character doesn't tell his parents where he's going. As you would expect, things don't go well.

This is one college you would not want your children to attend. If you were a student, you wouldn't want to go there either. It's a real turn off to have a dorm that used to be an insane asylum.
