Looking for the perfect read to get into (or maybe wrap up) this spooky season? The Final Girl Support Group by Grady Hendrix is the horror book for you, especially if you’ve ever wondered what happens to the sole survivors of slasher films after the ambulances clear and the credits roll.
You’ll root for Lynnette Tarkington and the rest of the tough-as-nails final girls in their decades-old support group as they set out to rid the world of the killer (or killers) targeting them once and for all. Hendrix serves up serious 80s vibes reminiscent of your favorite cult classics, all from the perspective of a flawed heroine out for redemption, determined to survive at all costs. The audiobook version (available on OverDrive) read by Adrienne King didn’t disappoint–this reviewer highly recommends it as a prime track to accompany either your weekly commute or any leaf peeping trips you have planned for the weekend.
Fingers crossed that Grady Hendrix and the Merrimack Valley Book Festival will be back at the HPL next October!
