Ones to watch in 2021: The Last Girl Goldy Moldavsky.

Scream meets Gossip Girl with a dash of One of Us is Lying!

When it comes to horror movies, the rules are clear:
– Avoid abandoned buildings, warehouses, and cabins at all times.
– Stay together: don’t split up, not even just to “check something out.…
– If there’s a murderer on the loose, do NOT make out with anyone …

New girl Rachel Chavez turns to horror movies for comfort, preferring them to the bored rich kids of her fancy New York High School. But then Rachel is recruited by the Mary Shelley Club, a mysterious student club that sets up terrifying Fear Tests; elaborate pranks inspired by urban legends and horror movies.

But when a sinister masked figure appears, Rachel realises that her past has caught up with her. It’s time for the ultimate prank to play out …

I’m a bit of an old school horror movie geek, so The Last Girl sounded like just the kind of novel I’d enjoy, turns out I was right, I LOVED this

Rachel is starting over in a new school after a traumatic event. In order to get past her post traumatic fear she watches endless horror films, figuring she can train her responses. Now she’s a huge fan of all things horror which brings her to the attention of a secret society within her peer group but all is not as it seems…

I loved the character dynamics in this, really intriguing interactions and relationships that were difficult to pin down keeping things unexpected and tense. The author plays on the classic psychological horror theme really well, plus the storyline is cleverly woven to keep the reader off kilter with a genuine sense of unease.

The Last Girl could easily become it’s own Urban Legend, it is an homage to proper horror, an addictive rollercoaster of a read that like all the best horror films is also hugely entertaining even as you glance over your shoulder for that masked maniac.

Very much recommended.
