LoveReading View on Bedlam

Ally Kennen's observations of teenage life, along with the themes of dysfunctional families and the people who fall between the gaps in society, are what define her as one of the best authors writing for young people. In Bedlam Ally Kennen has once again been supremely clever in delivering a plot that will make your blood run cold whilst at the same time delivering dead pan humour. It's absolutely gripping but not everyone will be brave enough to read it.



This is the third title in the chilling teen series, following the Berserk and Beast.


Bedlam Synopsis

When 16-year-old Lexi is forced to move in with her estranged mother, she thinks she will die of boredom. Yet midnight howlings and regular break-ins convince her otherwise. And when Lexi follows her mother's dog into the woods and discovers the abandoned asylum, it is only too apparent that there is something out there. Something real.
