“National treasure Grady Hendrix follows his classic account of a haunted IKEA-like furniture showroom [...] with a nostalgia-soaked ghost story, MY BEST FRIEND'S EXORCISM.”
“This book packs all the magic of a summer horror flick.”
“The rare exorcism book that will make you cry, My Best Friend’s Exorcism is both a truly scary tale and a loving tribute to high school friendship.”
"This particular horror story is a love letter to the 1980s and to the power of friendship between women."
“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.”
“Hendrix's fusion of teen angst, '80s pop culture, and the power of true friendship is a treat.”
"My Best Friend’s Exorcism is a stand-out book with dark and twisted moments of humor that will appeal to almost any reader."
"As a whole, this novel truly surprised me as I was expecting YA-light-fare with suspenseful and supernatural events, but instead, My Best Friend’s Exorcism is a suitable Halloween narrative that digs deep into interpersonal friend relationships and demonized-exorcism circumstances to satisfy anyone with 80s-horror-nostalgia."
“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.”
"Deceptively linear, but entirely different and gory and creepy and funny."
"Grady Hendrix made it to my “auto buy” list after I read his first book, and it doesn’t look like he’s giving up that spot any time soon. If you like your horror mixed with humor, nostalgia, and a story about how powerful friendship can be, you don’t want to miss this book."
