Have you ever wanted to journey inside an abandoned and reportedly haunted place where unsaid horrors may still linger? Journey inside and uncover the truth beyond the walls of Linhurst State School and Hospital, the abandoned mental asylum in the small town of Spring Dale, hometown to curious and adventurous 9th grader Jack Alexander.
''A deftly crafted novel with an important underlying message,'' says Midwest Book Review.
Shrouded in mystery as long as Jack Alexander can remember, Linhurst stands a testament of mistreatment of those with disabilities and Jack wants to know why it is only now being demolished without explanation to the public.
