Thank you Berkley Publishing for my gifted ebook in exchange for my honest review.
Synopsis: In horror movies, the final girl is the one who’s left standing when the credits roll. The one who fought back, defeated the killer, and avenged her friends. The one who emerges bloodied but victorious. But after the sirens fade and the audience moves on, what happens to her? Lynnette Tarkington is a real-life final girl who survived a massacre twenty-two years ago, and it has defined every day of her life since. And she’s not alone. For more than a decade she’s been meeting with five other actual final girls and their therapist in a support group for those who survived the unthinkable, putting their lives back together, piece by piece. That is until one of the women misses a meeting and Lynnette’s worst fears are realized–someone knows about the group and is determined to take their lives apart again, piece by piece. But the thing about these final girls is that they have each other now, and no matter how bad the odds, how dark the night, how sharp the knife, they will never, ever give up.
Albeit a little more gory than I wanted it to be, but this book was awesome. I was biting my nails, hanging on the edge of my seat, from the very beginning. While it may be hard to relate to a “final girl”, these characters somehow are totally relatable! Their emotions and fears are so real, it gave me chills! Highly recommend this read! Just don’t stay up too late reading it 🙂
