I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I could hardly put it down. The writing and the flow of the story just pulled me right in. The subject matter peaked my interest. My sister is handicapped and when she was little my parents had to fight to get her an education. Everyone told them she would be better in an institution.

"Freeing Linhurst" is a Young Adult mystery novel based loosely on what happened within the walls of Pennhurst State School and Hospital, and the aftermath of its closing.

Good mystery

This is a fun, easy read for around Halloween (or any time). It also makes you think about what life was like or might have been like for people placed in mental institutions. Another bright spot in the story is science that is mentioned. Fission and fusion technology are simplified in the story, but it helps the young reader grasp the differences between the two.

I received a digital copy of this story in exchange for an honest review.

This book is well written, easy to read, and entertaining from beginning to end. The author does a great job of developing the individual characters along with the plot as he mixes drama, emotion, and fantasy into an intriguing story that additionally touches on lessons that would be valuable to any reader, especially young adults.

I enjoyed this book very much. It's a well written fiction story that has it's roots in a real place that inspired the author. The characters and pacing were wonderful. The plot was well thought out and kept you on your toes throughout.

The plot in this book was great. It hit on so many things that I wasn't expecting. It tackled such topics as bullies, abuse, death of a loved one, lies, love, and paranormal activity just to name a few. This book has a little bit of everything and it's so well
