The Final Girl Support Group

We rated this book:


The Final Girl Support Group centers on a woman named Lynnette Tarkington who is part of a group of women known as “final girls.” Final girls are the last and sole survivors in a horror film. In this book, a group of final girls meet each week as a form of therapy under the supervision of Dr. Carol Elliott. The women in the group all have their own individual issues but may (or may not) actually care for one another. Then, one day, Adrienne doesn’t show up to the meeting. Adrienne is the owner of Red Lake Camp, the very same place where she became a final girl, and where she has found solace in creating a retreat for victims of violence. One of the members gets a call during a meeting: Adrienne is dead.

This book is made up of the backstories of each of the final girls. Each story is reminiscent of a 1980s horror movie. I loved growing up in the 1980s watching these types of movies so I rather enjoyed the violent, bloody nature of this story. Others may not. And although the characters and stories were predictable, this book was still pretty entertaining.
