Resthaven by Erik Therme


Forced by her mother to spend the day with other girls her age, Kaylee has no idea that she’s about to walk into the biggest nightmare of her life.

After her parents split up and she’s moved to a new town, the last thing 15 year old Kaylee wants to do is spend the day with a group of girls she hardly knows. When one of them suggests a scavenger hunt in an abandoned retirement home, she’s not sure what to expect. Certainly not to find a bruised, deaf boy alone in one of the rooms. Or that they’ve been padlocked inside…

Creepy abandoned building? Check. Shifty characters that might be harboring dark secrets? Check. A shocking discovery that leads them in a race for their lives? Double-check. Though technically a YA thriller, Resthaven is classic psychological horror at it’s best- one that will have you on the edge of your seat as you race to finish the book. Those who loved Therme’s previous novel MORTOM will not be disappointed with this fast-paced, heart-pounding read. Twists abound as young Kaylee uncovers layer by layer the mysteries surrounding her new friends, and what exactly has been going on in the eerie, abandoned retirement home called Resthaven. A fresh, gripping story with a surprising twist that makes it all but impossible to put down- highly recommended!
