BooksToRead Review

Grady Hendrix is fast a becoming a household name within the horror genre. Stories that appear to be a gimmick at first glance, soon turn out to be particularly terrifying once you start reading. Horrorstr was his horror debut, think of some sort of an Ikea store for torture equipment. His successor, My Best friend's Exorcism, published in 2016, seems a throwback to one of the best horror traditions with the central theme of being possessed by the devil and the obligatory exorcism that follows. But in the hands of Grady Hendrix this typical horror story gets a very unique and modern twist.

In My Best friend's Exorcism Abby Gretchen are best friends since secondary school. But when they go to college everything changes. Gretchen starts to behave differently. And as a strange coincidences and bizarre behavior are beginning to pile up, for Abby there is but one possible explanation: her best friend is possessed by a demon. And Abby is not going to just surrender her best friend to a demon. With the help of some unlikely allies Abby begins a quest to save her friend of the devil. But is their friendship strong enough to overcome this evil? The best horror book of 2016.

Book description

An unholy hybrid of Beaches and The Exorcist that blends teen angst, adolescent drama, unspeakable horrors, and a mix of ’80s pop songs 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?
