The League of Beastly Dreadfuls


The League of Beastly Dreadfuls
By Holly Grant
Random House, 2015. Fiction. 294 p.

Anastasia was just a normal eleven year old until one day two old women claiming to be her aunts picked her at school, telling her she was to stay with them since her parents were in a freak vacuum cleaner accident. They take her to an old Victorian home aptly named St. Agony's Asylum for the Criminally Insane and there she uncovers secrets, including two other kids her age who are trapped. Together they form the League of Beastly Dreadfuls and plan their escape.

This book has quirkiness and humor reminiscent of Lemony Snicket, Chris Grabenstein, and Roland Dahl.
