In our episode this week, Claire and I talk about My Best Friend's Exorcism by Grady Hendrix. We also talked about a lot of things from our childhoods and what school was like when we were kids, and how Claire doesn't know who THE POWER TEAM is. We made promises to each other to go roller skating and ice skating and eat funnel cake when and if we meet in real life. Even though we know we're best friends, and everyone else knows, too, you can definitely feel it in this episode. It was heartwarming, really, even with the demons!
Wait... Demons?! Yes, My Best Friend's Exorcism has a demon in it, obviously! But it's more a story of friendship. It's like a best friend story with a demon on the side. So what happens?
Abby and Gretchen have been friends since Abby's 10th birthday party. They're in high school now and, though some things have changed in their lives, they're still best friends. One night at a slumber party with their other best friends, Margaret and Glee, Gretchen goes missing. She's found the next morning, thank goodness, but she's not the same. At first, she just seems scared and tired, but then she stops bathing and changing clothes, and then she turns her friends against each other. Abby is the only one who even wants to have anything to do with her, and she's struggling, too. When a Power Team comes to visit their school, one of the members claims to see a demon hanging around Gretchen, so Abby gets down to business. Eventually she gets help from Brother Lemon, one of the Power Team, and together they try to exorcise Gretchen's demon... but Brother Lemon gives up... What happens along the way and, more importantly, HOW DOES IT END?! Watch the movie, check out our episode, read our summary or read the book for all the details!
