Book Review: My Best Friend’s Exorcism by Grady Hendrix

She could decide how she was going to be. She had a choice. Life could be an endless series of joyless chores, or she could get totally pumped and make it fun. There were bad things, and there were good things, but she got to choose which things to focus on. Her mom focused only on the bad things. Abby didn’t have to.

Book Review

I devoured this book in one night. It’s been sitting on my nightstand, haunting me. I found it on an article that had the top ten scariest books or something, and I bought it right away. Took me a while to pick it up. I mean, it looks harmless (see the picture of the cover–and it’s designed like a regular yearbook!), but as you get into it, ummmm, sh*t gets real. Pardon my French.

I loved My Best Friend’s Exorcism. It was a tale of friendship that travels beyond even demon possessions. It reminded me of growing up–although I didn’t deal with anything this serious–and was scary at the same time. The only thing I didn’t like was the structure. It started with the main character, Abby, being older and remembering the whole chain of events. Then 99% of the book was Abby being young, and then the end crammed in a whole bunch of years at once. Trimming the first intro and the last would have made it a completely different experience. I might have wondered what happened after–but that can be good, in many ways.

Anyway, as I was reading this, I heard things around my house. The book was very suspenseful. I was nervous AF. This book really creeped me out. Also, me reading it on Easter weekend is an odd coincidence and I just now thought of how that might be weird..haha!

I recommend this book for anyone who is looking for a book that is good, has a great plot line, and also might keep them up at night. It’s 11:18 PM, and I don’t plan on going to bed anytime soon until I watch a few RuPaul episodes to get my mind off of things!

If you’re into some scary stuff, check this book out! My cover is way cooler than this one, in my opinion, but this is the same book here:
