Published in July 2021 from Berkley, THE FINAL GIRL SUPPORT GROUP is a story about what it means to survive. It is both an homage to and subversion of iconic slasher films.
Recently, THE FINAL GIRL SUPPORT GROUP was highlighted in The Guardian with a stunning review which says, “Hendrix’s cinematic knowledge is deployed with skill, and it’s not necessary to be a fan of slasher movies to enjoy this very clever, gleefully violent, self-aware deconstruction of the genre.”
THE FINAL GIRL SUPPORT GROUP was chosen as one of Library Reads‘ Hall of Fame Selections. It was also picked as one of USA Today‘s “Best Books to Read This Summer” and Cultress’ “Best Science Fiction & Fantasy Titles.”
