I went in expecting this novel to end in a certain way. To my pleasant surprise, it took me on a rollercoaster ride of thrills and suspense. Final Girls follows Quincy Carpenter, a woman who was the only person who survived a horrific massacre when she was younger. Quincy is one of three Final Girls, and was caught up in a media firestorm. She’s now a successful baking blogger, and has a nice apartment in New York City with her loving boyfriend. She hasn’t fully escaped her past, though. She’s picked up some unhealthy habits in the intervening years, and these are exacerbated when a fellow Final Girl kills herself and the other member of the unwanted club arrives on her doorstep.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Final Girls, and was pleased with how the novel unfolded. I was constantly thrown for a loop, and learning more about Quincy’s past was fascinating. The story was fast-paced and creepy, and I can’t recommend it enough if you enjoy mystery/thrillers and/or slasher films.
