My Best Friend's Exorcism
by Grady Hendrix
-Horror, YA
Just released: May 17, 2016
Amazon | Goodreads | Website

A heartwarming story of friendship and demonic possession. 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? Like an unholy hybrid of Beaches and The Exorcist, My Best Friend’s Exorcism blends teen angst, adolescent drama, unspeakable horrors, and a mix of ’80s pop songs into a pulse-pounding supernatural thriller.

=====> Despite being in the horror genre I have a feeling this is be a fun one with funny bits to chuckle over.

FYI: Quirk books is starting off their Summer Book Club reading with this book (details).

  1. This is new to me. I don't usually read horror, but I may give this a go just to relive the 80's and see if the author gets it right. (I graduated in 1987.)

  2. Well, this sounds different. I can see why it might be a horror comedy and something fun to read.

  3. I don't normally read horror books but this does sound like it could have some interesting twists - hope you enjoy it! Here's my WoW post

  4. I read this as an ARC. I really enjoyed it although there is one scene I could totally do without. Hope you love it!
