A heartwarming story of friendship and demonic possession

The year is 1988. High school sophomores Abby and Gretchen have been best friends since the 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?

Like an unholy hybrid of Beaches and The Exorcist, My Best Friend’s Exorcism blends teen angst, adolescent drama, unspeakable horrors, and a mix of 80s pop songs into a pulse-pounding supernatural thriller.

Grady Hendrix is an award-winning and New York Times bestselling novelist and screenwriter living in New York City. He is the author of HorrorstörMy Best Friend’s Exorcism (which is being adapted into a feature film by Amazon Studios), We Sold Our SoulsThe Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires, and The Final Girl Support Group. Grady also authored the Bram Stoker Award–winning nonfiction book Paperbacks from Hell and These Fists Break Bricks: How Kung Fu Movies Swept America and Changed the World.

Emily Woo Zeller began her voice-over career by voicing animation in Asia. She returned to the United States in 2009 and found a natural fit as an audiobook narrator. Described by AudioFile magazine as doing "an extraordinary job of varying the voices in the dialogue without losing the intimacy of the story," Emily's multilingual, multicultural framework brings a particularly unique, clear-eyed, and intimate perspective into Asian American narratives. While she specializes in Asian American narratives, Emily's work spans a broad spectrum, including young adult fiction and such titles as The Whites of Their Eyes by Jill Lepore and The Sex Diaries Project by Arianne Cohen. She also narrated Gulp by Mary Roach, for which she won an AudioFile Earphones Award.

Reviews

“A nostalgia-soaked ghost story.”

“This tale of ’80s gal pals dealing with a demonic intrusion could easily a have been a paperback original during horror’s boom period—and that’s a compliment.”

“Readers who thought Heathers wasn’t quite dark enough will find this humorous horror tale—filled with spot-on ’80s pop-culture references—totally awesome.”

“Hendrix brings his blend of dark humor and horror back in this perfect balance of teenage dread and supernatural thrills.”

“Definitely fun to read; Hendrix has a great feel for the 1980s…[and] a great feel for teenage angst and the important and durability of childhood friends.”

“Moments of goop and gore are offset by Hendrix’s perceptive grasp of even yuckier adolescent social politics…After all, who among us hasn’t at one point suspected that our former bestie was secretly the devil?”

“A nostalgic (if blood-soaked) horror story to warm the hearts of Gen Xers.”

“[A] genre-bending hoot of a novel…Fans of satire, nostalgia, dark comedy and, well, demons should read this book.”

“Fast-paced and witty…Balances moments of true horror with a portrait of true friendship and the lengths to which one friend will go for another.”
