Ten years ago, college student Quincy Carpenter went on vacation with five friends and came back alone, the only survivor of a horror movie–scale massacre. In an instant, she became a member of a club no one wants to belong to—a group of similar survivors known in the press as the Final Girls. Lisa, who lost nine sorority sisters to a college dropout’s knife; Sam, who went up against the Sack Man during her shift at the Nightlight Inn; and now Quincy, who ran bleeding through the woods to escape Pine Cottage and the man she refers to only as Him. The three girls are all attempting to put their nightmares behind them, and, with that, one another. Despite the media’s attempts, they never meet.
Now, Quincy is doing
well—maybe even great, thanks to her Xanax prescription. She has a
caring almost-fiancé, Jeff; a popular baking blog; a beautiful
apartment; and a therapeutic presence in Coop, the police officer who
saved her life all those years ago. Her memory won’t even allow her to
recall the events of that night; the past is in the past.
is, until Lisa, the first Final Girl, is found dead in her bathtub,
wrists slit, and Sam, the second, appears on Quincy’s doorstep. Blowing
through Quincy’s life like a whirlwind, Sam seems intent on making
Quincy relive the past, with increasingly dire consequences, all of
which makes Quincy question why Sam is really seeking her out. And when
new details about Lisa’s death come to light, Quincy’s life becomes a
race against time as she tries to unravel Sam’s truths from her lies,
evade the police and hungry reporters, and, most crucially, remember
what really happened at Pine Cottage, before what was started ten years
ago is finished.
“The Final Girls need you. . . . The Final Girls
are tough, everything survivors should be. But the new threat is
clever, ominous, even closer than you suspect. You are about to gasp.
You might drop the book. You may have to look over your shoulder. But
you must keep reading. @goodreads
Let us just take a moment to admire the beauty of my UK edition of this book. My favorite colors together: pink & black =)
you will see in the first picture, it's the standard front cover with
brilliant pink and black standing out. Oh, Book Depository I love you
and thank you for making my day.
This next photo shows you the inside cover flap which is black and goes perfectly with the rest of the book.
in the final ( <--- heh ) picture, we have the freaking awesome
black colored outer edges. I'm freaking in love! Oh, and don't mind
Frankie there, he didn't come with the book. He belongs to my dog, Lucy,
and he just wanted to help out. He's awesome that way.
Now lets crack on with the review!
thought this book was fan freaking tastic! I'm glad I stick to my guns
and read what I want because there were mixed reviews on this one. But, I
don't give a rats behind! I read what I want! And don't be coming on my
review saying how much you didn't like the book. RESPECT people. I
don't need nobody trying to rain on my parade! Ya get me?
didn't read much of the summary of this book. I just read about final
girls and something about a killer. To be honest, I was thinking about
that movie I love and own, see below ↓
It wasn't nothing like that people. So, there are these three women.
WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ********* SOME MILD SPOILERS**************
there are these three women. They each go through a horrific ordeal
with a crazed killer and they each live to tell the tale, well for the
most part. They get labeled the final girls because they were the final
ones in a killing spree. It's this whole thing, you can probably look it
up or watch that cool movie I mentioned above.
Anyway, we have Quincey, Sam and Lisa.
is the main character in this book because she just is and Lisa has
some stuff and then Sam comes in and she's all in some stuff with
Quincy has a nice life. A great home, husband, a cooking
blog and she's all good. Well, not so much, she's on pills and can't
ever remember what happened all of those years ago. She still talks to
the cop that saved her, just sort of a see how you're doing from time to
The final girls have never met one another. Quincy and
Lisa talked a few times but never in person. Then Lisa is dead. How?
What? Not telling you.
Then Sam shows up on Quincy's doorstep.
I'm thinking, girl you have never seen this woman in your life and they
never had anything but yearbook pictures of her. Don't be letting people
into your apartment. I mean seriously?
The girls strike up a
weird type of friendship and then all kinds of weird stuff starts going
on. Then Quincy starts remembering things! She's the only one that
couldn't remember anything from her attack and all of her friends
getting killed. But now it's slowly coming out . . .
kinds of cray stuff starts happening and it's the what the hell moments
and then all this stuff happens and it ends. I'm like, well, I thought I
saw that coming. But, I didn't!
Anyway, who cares. It was soooooooooo good, I loved it. I'm so glad I got it and a million starts goes to the cover.
