Description



Book Synopsis



Soon to be a major motion picture.

From the New York Times best-selling author of The Southern Book Club's Guide to Slaying
Vampires
, this unholy hybrid of Beaches and The Exorcist blends teen angst and unspeakable horrors into a pulse-pounding supernatural thriller.

The year is 1988. High school sophomores Abby and Gretchen have been best friends since fourth grade. But after an evening of skinny-dipping goes disastrously wrong, Gretchen begins to act...different. She's moody. She's irritable. And bizarre incidents keep happening whenever she's nearby. 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?



Review Quotes




"National treasure Grady Hendrix follows his classic account of a haunted IKEA-like furniture showroom, Horrorstor (2014), with a nostalgia-soaked ghost story, My Best Friend's Exorcism."--The Wall Street Journal

"Take The Exorcist, add some hair spray and wine coolers, and enroll it in high school in 1988 -- that'll give you My Best Friend's Exorcism...Campy. Heartfelt. Horrifying."--Minnesota Public Radio

"Clever, heartfelt, and get-under-your-skin unnerving."--Fangoria

"A touching story of high school friendship and, well, demonic possession."--Bloody Disgusting

"Terrific...Sharply written...[My Best Friend's Exorcism] makes a convincing case for [Hendrix's] powers as a sharp observer of human behavior, filtered through a fun genre conceit that doesn't skimp on the spooky--or the bodily fluids."--The A.V. Club

"My Best Friend's Exorcism is perfectly spooky, catty fun while simultaneously bringing forth a greater message about friendship, religion, self-image, and the undeniable power of Phil Collins."--Collider

"Think Mean Girls with demonic possession, set in 1988 Charleston. It's funny, it's heart-wrenching, it's even a little spiritual, in a very strange way."--Southern Living magazine

"The perfect mix of '80s nostalgia and scares."--POPSUGAR

"This book packs all the magic of a summer horror flick."--Bustle

"If you're looking for a good summer book, something for the beach or the back porch that won't insult your intelligence, one that's tense and sometimes scary and sometimes funny, with characters you may even come to like and admire as they come of age, keep My Best Friend's Exorcism in mind."--SFFWorld
