“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, CNN, 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 best-selling 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 sizzles with action, originality, and a gleaming concept sharp as a scalpel.” (Charlaine Harris, number one New York Times best-selling author)
“A great read…[Hendrix] excels at writing horror humor.... His characters are funny and real, though at least one will definitely lose a limb at some point.... Though the final girls’ plight has all the scares of great horror fiction, there is an element of truth in their situation that will be recognizable to anyone who has experienced real trauma.” (The New York Times)
“A wildly entertaining romp through the conventions of horror’s slasher film subgenre.... Hendrix masterfully evokes the paranoid existences of his diverse cast in the aftermath of their traumatic ordeals, and he so explicitly details the massacres and fictional film sagas that grew out of them that readers may believe them to be real. The result is a wonderfully suspenseful and darkly comic novel that cleverly subverts popular culture. Horror fans will be wowed.” (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

Supreme! I absolutely loved it!
Recommend it everyone who enjoys a good slasher thriller full with strong bad ass women that survive and kick some serious ass.
The book was filled with action until the very end and it was amazing! I never saw the twists coming!
