Title: Project 17
Author: Laurie Faria Stolarz
Publisher: Disney * Hyperion Books
Series or stand-alone: Stand alone
Setting: Danvers State Hospital, Danvers, MA, near Boston
We each went to Danvers State Hospital, the old abandoned asylum on the hill, with the intention of spending one night before the place got torn down.
Derik decides to make a film, REAL WORLD style, using the asylum as the backdrop and many interesting things happen during the night. The book is written from the POV of several characters and is in first-person present tense although I didn't notice it much. I thought it might be off-putting but I didn't have any problems. This would be a good read for the 13+ crowd and great for Halloween displays. A spooky book for tweens and teens.
