The Dead Girls of Hysteria Hall.
Booklist Reviews 2015 September #2
After a great-great-aunt dies and leaves her everything, Delia's family vacations at her aunt's old house, once an asylum for hysterical girls. Very much a girl of the present, Delia frets about missing her cell phone and her connection to the outside world, not about being haunted and trapped by the spirits of hundreds of dead girls. Chilling things start happening right away, such as messages from her deceased aunt, and typical haunted-house scares are made all the more terrifying by the history of the house. In between chapters are page-long "Observations after the Fact," witty little bits of Delia's humor and intellect, which give the reader hope that our heroine will survive the terrors she's sure to face. On the outside, The Dead Girls of Hysteria Hall looks like any quick-read horror novel, but in the capable hands of Alender, the frights come fast and furious, and the least-expected scares are the best and bloodiest. Fans of the author's Bad Girls Don't Die (2009) will clamor for this crowd-pleaser. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
