My Best Friend's Exorcism

A Novel

“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

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.”—

“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


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


“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.”—


“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.”—

“[Hendrix proves his] own black-magic mettle by conjuring up an era where ill-informed paranoia (and just plain ding-dongness) turned some of the quietest corners of America into fear factories...Too bad Satan never actually did show up back then. He woulda loved it.”—Wired.com


“A book every horror fan should know.”—
Dread Central

“Satirical, intense and surprisingly heartwarming, 
My Best Friend’s Exorcism is, like, totally the perfect summer reading choice—if you don’t mind some gore.”—
Sunday Gazette-Mail


“Smart, sassy and satanic.”—
Rue Morgue
