The 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 Read More chevron_right

   Great book for horror lovers
If you are a horror fan, you will love this book. Easter eggs for true fans of the genre. Lots of Easter eggs for true fans of the genre. Great story. I hope it gets a sequel... these days you gotta have a sequel .
   I need a support group to get me through this book
One of the worst books I have ever read is seriously one of the worst books I seriously hate. I enjoyed reading the southern book clubs guide to slaying vampires and thought I would give this one a try. I would have read this book DNF, but at the time I didn 't have any other books to read. Truly boring and I can 't stand the way he writes in this book about females. It became so annoying and repetitive and I found myself skimming through the last 100 pages. The ending was not worth the time, the ending was predictable too.
   Not the best, not the worst.
I read this book in a little less than a week because it kept my attention. The plot became a little too ridiculous at times and I lost in the unbelievability of it. In terms of “final girl ” books, I much preferred “ The Luckiest Girl Alive ” by Jessica Knoll or even “Final Girls '' by Riley Sager. I am not upset that I read it, but I probably won 't pick it back in the future.
   The Final Girl Support Group
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!
   Wanted more…
I was devastated by My Best Friend's exorcism and expected something along these lines. Sadly, it was lacking that 80's sensibility and felt more like a 90's horror film that was oddly dark and without hope.
   Fast paced, campy fun
This is the first grady hendrix book I have read and now I can 't wait to read more. This book is full of action, humor, and heart. Such an original concept is such :
   Hendrix delivers again
Yet another Gravy Hendrix book, which drew me in rapidly and built up believable female characters in extreme circumstances. I would recommend this book to any fan of slasher novels and especially to fans of horror movies.
   Another brilliant and original take by Grady Hendrix
As often the case with Grady Hendrix, this novel has deep roots. Hidden with a wise homage to the slasher genre is insightful commentary on relevant social issues.
   Just re-read his past books, skip this one.
I am a huge Grady fan and was immediately hooked after reading the concept for this book! The execution is so sloppy that I feel compelled to return it. The characters are dimensional and one is dull. Though the plot begins strong and promising quickly dissipates into a world of “ Final Girls ” who hate each other to the point of leaving each other for dead and writing books about how much they hate each other for no good particular reason. Lastly, the misandry is nauseating in this book. I understand that Grady is clearly reversing the man-woman role in this book in horror, but like any good writer, don 't tell me, show me.
   Best real life imitates art
This is the best representation of what would be life if there were actual final girls. Grady Hendrix captured this idea of them as adults needing therapy, not at all out of the realm of possibility, and Grady Hendrix captured it here. Adding interviews, articles, etc. Epistolary meets documentary feeling gives we the readers a you are there epistolary gives we the readers a we are there feeling. This works on so many levels !
