Met this girl named Eleven who recommended the waffle cone. If the lights start flickering, I‘m out of here!

My biggest complaint about Stranger Things (really ONLY complaint, I love that show) is that it‘s not a book! As a joke, my husband surprised me with this book! It‘s sort of a prequel with Eleven‘s mother‘s backstory. So far, it‘s poorly written trash, which is completely what I expected and has not disappointed. I‘m kind of in the mood for mindless trash anyway.

A fun prequel to Stranger Things, focusing on the generation before Eleven. I've still only watched the first season so I'm not certain if other characters appear in the show but it's wicked background info on Dr. Brenner and the Hawkins lab. Not sure people unfamiliar with the show would appreciate it but I definitely think fans will enjoy spending more time in this world. #mommyreads #audiobooks #booksonthebigscreen #scifi

Suspicious Minds by Gwenda Bond is a must-read for any fan of the TV series, Stranger things. This thrilling tale was so well-written and so similar to the tone of the show! I absolutely loved it.

This is an EXTREMELY RARE sight! My oldest daughter unfortunately is not a reader (thanks accelerated reader 😒). But luckily she found a Stranger Things book at Book-A-Million today and I‘m hoping 🤞🏼she will love it!!

Sweetkokoro I hope she loves it! My daughter too is showing signs of not liking reading when she originally did like it. Once she was introduced the accelerated reading at school her interest took a nose dive, she hates falling the tests that go with the books. And half the ones she wants to read are not part of the lists of qualified books, It‘s rough. 4mo
SassyBookworm @jb72 exactly!!! And I will try anything to get her to love reading! @readordierachel I‘m crossing my fingers 🤞🏼! @Bookish_B thank you ❤️! 4mo
SassyBookworm @Sweetkokoro Alexa loved to read and be read to as a small child but the AR program killed it! She didn‘t like the books, she felt forced to read (I‘m the same way I don‘t like being forced), and she could easily read the 1pt books and make her quota. The high school has helped a little letting them choose books. But if she follows me it will be a while before she enjoys reading again. I was in my late 20s before I started to love to read again 4mo
Sweetkokoro Alanni is 10 & she loved being read to as well & enjoyed reading on her own. But she feels the same way as your daughter she feels forced to read & while she can pick what she wants the choices are undesirable. Her teacher doesn‘t allow them to gain points from grade levels below their appointed range and deletes points obtained by them, which makes Alanni super mad. I get the program but I feel it has the opposite effect on some kids. 4mo
Tamra I really wish it was open choice for students for so many reasons. 4mo
shellleigh33 My daughter is not a big reader either but she loves Stranger Things and graphic novel books. Graphic novels books don‘t get many points on AR tests though and this is very discouraging to her. 4mo
Paula3 AR has been proven to hinder readers. I hope she enjoys picking her own books and subject matter ♡ 4mo
SassyBookworm @Sweetkokoro wow! Deletes the points if they are below grade level! Goodness that‘s kind of harsh. I completely agree for many kids it has the opposite effect. I understand them wanting kids to read but when they are forced to read books they don‘t like, it just turns so many off of the joy of reading a book you love! 4mo
SassyBookworm @Tamra me too! I believe Alexa would lie to read more. Since in high school she was able to pick a book and found one she really liked. I‘m hoping this one she will as well. @shellleigh33 Alexa has found a few graphic novels but they aren‘t as popular around our area as many places. I‘m glad many parent are in the same boat as me with the AR struggles! @Paula3 it‘s sad they keep the program when hinders students. Thank you! She read 25p last nite 4mo
booksaremyfavorite My daughters were also like that due to AR. Thankfully now that they can read whatever they want they both love reading. 4mo

It's been a while since I've finished a book because of school but I finally finished this one! I loved it! It was very well-written. It's a great prequel to the show. It was interesting to read more about Eleven's mom and the experiments prior to the events of the show. This book showed just how truly evil Dr. Brenner is. I would definitely read more from this author!

Was glad I borrowed from library instead of buying.
Very disappointing 😒 I'm a big Stranger Things fan but this was just not written well at all. The plot was silly, the characters cartoonish
My first negative review on here because this made me mad lol 😣

I'm still very excited for season 3 though!!!! #strangerthings

Patchshank That sucks. I'm a few chapters into it, but I've gotten side tracked by other things. Maybe I'll like it? Who knows. 4mo
Beatlefan129 I can‘t wait until season 3 is here!! 4mo

A decent read I enjoyed although I do wish that the characters have more depth. It is a good backstory to how Stranger Things begins and it complements well with the TV show. I'm looking forward to reading the next one in the series and I am definitely so ready for Stranger Things Season 3 in July 2019! Woohoo!

Rating: 3.5🌟 (between a pick and so-so)

Stranger Things being the amazingness that it is, I came to this book with extremely high expectations, but Gwenda Bond met them. This novel tells the tale of Terry, a college girl caught up in a dangerous experiment with seemingly no way out. As Terry, along with her three friends from the experiment, learn the truth about the experiment and the lab, they find themselves in a fight for more than just their lives. I highly recommend it.

I missed the author event at my local indie last week, ☹️ but snagged a signed copy today. Gwenda Bond is also a local author. It‘s been advertised that she is the only author (so far, I‘m sure) with permission to write about Stranger Things. This is a prequel to the TV series. I‘m so excited!! 😆🥳

Karkar I saw this the other day. Will be interested to see if you like it. 6mo
NatalieR @Karkar A bookseller told me the book has only received positive reviews. I hope to join the positive praise club soon! 😊 6mo
