Sure, my 12 year old isn't going to feel it like my husband and I do, but he relates as a kid--kids don't change. this is a possession novel that offers several different “outs” along the way before committing to a stance on the “demon or no demon? Aunque nadie se los pondrá fácil, ni siquiera sus progenitores, que estarán demasiado ocupados con sus vidas como para prestarles la más mínima atención a sus hijas adolescentes. In his new book Hendrix again merges two genres: a Generation X, memoir-ish coming of age tale and a scary take on William Peter Blatty's The Exorcist. Sometimes the horror seemed to creep up and come out of nowhere and other times it was anticipated and sustained.

It felt more like a suspense novel a lot of the time but there were still some horrific moments that I won't go into here. But we’ve talked to doctors and they tell us that what’s happening is an unfortunate sickness of the mind and spirit that happens sometimes as girls grow up. A book podcast recently hailed Grady Hendrix as the king of creating nuanced female characters within the horror genre.The ending really got me and made me think of my two childhood best friends, who I am so lucky and thankful are still in my life. so, that was all a lot of words going nowhere, i know - but again - this is pretty much just for me to figure some shit out. I think it helps that I was born in 1976, so I'm the target audience and I buddy read it with a friend who was also in middle school in the late 80s-high school in the 90s, so you know--the E. Abby does manage to save Gretchen, though love and friendship and the half-assed assistance of a wannabe exorcist. I didn't care about Gretchen and Abby's friendship, despite the author spending the first 50 pages of the book building the foundation of their relationship.

The creepy scenes were spot-on, but most of all, I adored the friendship theme that played out through the entire book. 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.It was exactly what I was looking for while I counted down the seconds until the premier of the new season of the best 1980s deliciousness since the actual 1980s . Y el segundo motivo es que al ser uno de los temas que más ronda por la literatura y el cine obviamente es de lo más manoseado que hay por lo que es muy poco posible que sorprenda o innove de alguna manera. I love recommending this book for the initial eyebrow raise, but it is a full blown winner of a book. What Gretchen is going through is very scary, and I don’t blame you for backing off from your friendship a little.
