Publisher Description

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.

“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?”

— Wired

    — Wall Street Journal
  • “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.”

    — Rio Rancho Observer (New Mexico)

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

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

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

    — Library Journal

    — John Langan, author of House of Windows
