Waterstones Says

With its retro VHS pastiche cover and myriad references to 80s pop culture, My Best Friend’s Exorcism may be built for fans of Stranger Things, but it is a wildly entertaining ride in its own right. A high school drama of adolescent angst that just happens to feature the devil as a prominent character, Hendrix’s relentlessly quirky gem is a sure-fire cult success.

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. From the author of the brilliant haunted furniture store novel, Horrorstor' (a) nostalgic tale of teen angst, friendship and unholy possession.' - New York Journal of Books

MEDIA REVIEWS

'National treasure Grady Hendrix follows his classic account of a haunted IKEA-like furniture showroom, Horrorst r (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

'It's clever, heartfelt, and get-under-your-skin unnerving without succumbing to any of the more predictable exorcism story tropes -- things happen in this book that you will not expect. It will leave you sleepless because you won't want to put it down, and you'll be too scared to.' - Fangoria

'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
