Product Details


One of Town & Country’s 50 Best Horror Books

“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

My Best Friend’s Exorcism has the same throwback vibes [as Stranger Things] and a vintage-looking cover to boot.”—Reader’s Digest

“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

More praise for Grady Hendrix:
“Pure, demented delight.”—The New York Times Book Review, on Paperbacks from Hell

Horrorstör delivers a crisp terror-tale…[and] Hendrix strikes a nice balance between comedy and horror.”—The Washington Post, on Horrorstör

“Hendrix’s darkest novel yet will leave readers begging for an encore.”—Booklist, starred review, on We Sold Our Souls

“A true appreciation of the genre.”—Los Angeles Times, on Paperbacks from Hell

“An inventive, hilarious haunted house tale.”—Bustle, on Horrorstör
“A good, creepy, music-tinged thriller.”—CNET, on We Sold Our Souls
