Throughout the entirety of this book, I was thinking to myself "Yeah, this is a solid 4 stars" but that ending. There were several horrific situations that happened and don’t worry, no spoilers here but wow, they were spectacular. Straight away I was enamoured with Gretchen and Abby's friendship, it felt born out of necessity and Hendrix creates a world for the reader where this is the most natural friendship in the world.

Their friend Glee has a crush on Father Morgan, and almost throws herself off the school roof when he doesn’t acknowledge her feelings. Similarly, the cast of characters surrounding them felt realistic and well-rounded, making the entire illusion of reality from this novel as solid as a rock. It's set up as a flashback, which is fine, then the story occurs in 'real time' then it becomes the present again and a bunch of time skips, I just didn't think any of that was necessary, the main '80's' storyline more than holds its own. this is a possession novel that offers several different “outs” along the way before committing to a stance on the “demon or no demon? Los personajes son muy fuertes, destacando sobre los demás las dos protas por excelencia, nuestras particulares heroínas que harán todo lo posible por salvar su amistad, ¿lo lograrán?She and Gretchen spent hours ranking their friendships, trying to determine who was a best friend and who was an everyday friend, debating whether anyone could have two best friends at the same time. It's a supernatural horror story, and the third act drives that home without mercy, but at its core, this is a story about friendship, and I'm glad I read it. In November 2018, it was announced that Endeavor Content had won the film adaptation rights for My Best Friend's Exorcism.

Es la segunda novela que leo de Grady Hendrix después de Horrorstör y la experiencia ha vuelto a ser muy divertida y aterradora a la vez. S. means one thing before you read the book and one much more specific thing after, and is the part that made me get as close to emotional as i can when reading. the second stepback, or opportunity to switch gears, comes during the ritual itself, as it should during any physical torture of a teenage girl “for her own good.This book is 100% one of the things that convinced me I was right to get back into reading as a hobby. I wanted to have fun with this, but the poor writing, horrible characters, and boring story line really hindered my overall enjoyment of this book. and I kind of wonder if Abby was supposed to be possessed originally since she hears the deep voice saying her name. this one has two stepbacks, of a sort, where the choice easily could have been made to move away from the demonic angle and go down an equally creepy but more real-world path. However, I don't think this book will alienate any of the younger generation of readers because 80s pop culture is super celebrated and people who can't relate on a personal level, will at least get it on the same level that they get what's going on in Stranger Things, which is wildly popular for all ages, you know?

V. Club wrote a favorable review for the book, writing "Hendrix’s prose walks the fine line between comedy and horror throughout, delivering a simultaneously heartwarming and terrifying tale of teenage friendship, which is something most of us can relate to, exorcism or not. Happy Death Day' Filmmaker, Gotham Group Tackling Horror Novel 'My Best Friend's Exorcism' (Exclusive)".I picked this book up after beginning the author's other novel, Southern Book Club's Guide to Slaying Vampires.
