The Final Girl Support Group
THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELERThe horror master.puts his unique spin on slasher movie tropes.-USA Today A can't-miss summer read, selected by The New York Times, Oprah Daily, Time, USA Today, The Philadelphia Inquirer, CN, LitHub, BookRiot, Bustle, Popsugar and the New York Public Library In horror movies, the final girls are the ones left standing when the credits roll. They made it through the worst night of their lives.but what happens after? Like his bestselling novel The Southern Book Club's Guide to Slaying Vampires, Grady Hendrix's latest is a fast-paced, frightening, and wickedly humorous thriller. From chain saws to summer camp slayers, The Final Girl Support Group pays tribute to and slyly subverts our most popular horror films--movies like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and Scream. Lynnette Tarkington is a real-life final girl who survived a massacre. For more than a decade, she's been meeting with five other final girls and their therapist in a support group for those who survived the unthinkable, working to put their lives back together. Then one woman misses a meeting, and their worst fears are realized--someone knows about the group and is determined to rip their lives apart again, piece by piece. But the thing about final girls is that no matter how bad the odds, how dark the night, how sharp the knife, they will never, ever give up.

The Final Girl Support Group
By Abigail , Oct 28, 2021
It’s amazing how much money and fame that tragedy can rake up. They’ve all been through horrible, scarring events that will haunt them for the rest of their lives. But, is this one a final girl or a survivor? Does that one deserve to be here or is she just roadkill?
The Final Girl Support Group shows the barriers keeping girls who share traumatic memories away from bonding and helping each other. We go through the journey of Lynnette who is very conscious of the world around her (the author did an AMAZING job writing what went through Lynnette’s head!), or so she believes. This book proved to me that I actually *can* finish books where I can’t stand the main character. Lynnette jumped to conclusions very quickly, leaving me sometimes to wonder “What are we doing again?” in the middle of a chapter. But, finishing the book, I realize how much I appreciate that. I truly did feel like I was in her shoes- and it was terrifying. Watching the characters bully each other every now and then was hilarious, too. A little comedic relief never hurt anyone.
Watch the girls fall apart, get back together and repeat over and over while feeling every emotion possible: anger, sadness, nervousness and doubt. Overall, if you don’t like fast and messy plots, maybe this book isn’t for you. But if you don’t mind those things, it wouldn’t hurt to give it a try!
