YA In The Alleyway~THE REQUIEM RED by Brynn Chapman & Giveaway


YA in the Alleyway is my revised meme to give young adult literature the spotlight it deserves. It also gives YA authors the opportunity to share their signature with the world! Feel free to join me any Wednesday. 

TOUR SCHEDULE
As promised last week, I come to you today with a new young adult read! I became a fan of this author's work after reading her YA take on Sherlock Holmes daughter, Arabella, in BONESEEKER. I really enjoyed that book, and you can find my thoughts on it HERE if you're interested. On that note, here's a peek at her latest release.


THE REQUIEM RED 
by Brynn Chapman
Publisher: Month9Books
Released: April 5, 2016
Pages: 300

Description: Patient Twenty-nine.

A monster roams the halls of Soothing Hills Asylum. Three girls dead. 29 is endowed with the curse…or gift of perception. She hears messages in music, sees lyrics in paintings. And the corn. A lifetime asylum resident, the orchestral corn music is the only constant in her life.

Mason, a new, kind orderly, sees 29 as a woman, not a lunatic. And as his belief in her grows, so does her self- confidence. That perhaps she might escape, might see the outside world. 

But the monster has other plans. The missing girls share one common thread...each was twenty-nine's cell mate. 

Will she be next?

In real life, the geek gene runs strong in her family, as does the Asperger’s syndrome. Her writing reflects her experience as a pediatric therapist and her interactions with society’s downtrodden. In fiction, she’s a strong believer in underdogs and happily-ever-afters. She also writes non-fiction and lectures on the subjects of autism and sensory integration and is a medical contributor to online journal The Age of Autism.

  1. I love spooky! Don't think I've read anything set in an asylum - unless you count Shutter Island (which was all kinds of spooky) which I didn't actually read but saw the movie.

  8. Wow, this sounds very spooky, and I'm not normally into spooky. The only book I can think of with a Victorian-type asylum setting is THE LOCKED GARDEN by Gloria Whelan.

    1. Ooh, I'll have to check that out for my summer reading! I haven't read this one, but I really did enjoy her other one - BONESEEKER. It had a creepy element to it, too. Plus, Sherlock was her dad. Kind of cool...
