I picked this book up after beginning the author's other novel, Southern Book Club's Guide to Slaying Vampires. As I find with most Grady Hendrix books, the gore started to get really 'out there' as I reached the end of the book, but it was mostly in good fun. Hendrix was outrageously inventive with his debut novel (Horrorst r, 2014) and continues his winning streak with a nostalgic (if blood-soaked) horror story to warm the hearts of Gen Xers . The 80s song title chapter headings were perfection and fitted the narrative of the chapters perfectly.

There’s the exorcist floating in the middle of her screen, balding and with a ponytail, smiling at the camera in a blurry headshot the size of a postage stamp. Four girls in high school are just trying to get by and on one strange night things get a little weird.

Grady Hendrix made a splash in 2014 with his inventive debut novel, Horrorstor, which was among my favorite books of the year . Abby’s investigation leads her to some startling discoveries―and by the time their story reaches its terrifying conclusion, the fate of Abby and Gretchen will be determined by a single question: Is their friendship powerful enough to beat the devil? Be forewarned that this is NOT going to scare you and should probably have been cross-marketed for both teens and geezers. It felt more like a suspense novel a lot of the time but there were still some horrific moments that I won't go into here. What started out as a horrifying reality for one of the characters became a place for the power of friendship to shine.Honestly the only reason I finished it was because it’s a quick read and I could at least get the satisfaction of finishing a book out of it. In typical Hendrix fashion, he did a brilliant job balancing humor and horror in “My Best Friend's Exorcism” which made me laugh out loud at some parts and yet still send chills down my spine in others. Overall, I recommend this book for anyone--not just fans of 80s pop culture (although they would love this! and I kind of wonder if Abby was supposed to be possessed originally since she hears the deep voice saying her name.

The characters have nuance too, and even those who don’t end up changing or going through anything major hardly feel static because they’re likely to be relatable figures. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. When there was a sudden switch back to presentable and perfect Gretchen I felt like I had whiplash but I was even more creeped out by this!

Abby and Gretchen have been best friends since the third grade, and one night during the summer, they go skinny dipping.
