My Best Friend’s Exorcism
“Dark, funny, and filled with 1980's nostalgia. Definitely atmospheric and took you to Charleston, South Carolina. I enjoyed this as an audiobook listen. Fairly low key with scary bits and gore. It sort of built up to it in the last few chapters. The demonic possession was definitely front and center, but it was also a great story about friendship, social class, and complicated families. This feels like a natural choice for my Stranger Things fans.”Cori, Bright Side Bookshop
