The Dead Girls of Hysteria Hall by Katie Alender
This is a fun to read, creepy thriller/mystery/horror book for teens. Delia has inherited a house from her aunt. When her family arrives, they find it is not just a house, but an old asylum for women and girls. Delia quickly feels the need to get out of the house, when she sees things that are not there and hears bells, but her parents want to fix up the house to sell it. Not a good idea for poor Delia. I liked that the book was more of a paranormal/thriller/mystery than a horror story, yet I think it has enough of the horror element to satisfy readers who are looking for that. I enjoyed the book and will certainly recommend it to teen readers who are looking for horror books.
