Six Reasons Why You Should Read ‘Stranger Things: Suspicious Minds’

It’s the summer of 1969, and the shock of conflict reverberates through the youth of America, both at home and abroad. As a student at a quiet college campus in the heartland of Indiana, Terry Ives couldn’t be farther from the front lines of Vietnam or the incendiary protests in Washington.

But the world is changing, and Terry isn’t content to watch from the sidelines. When word gets around about an important government experiment in the small town of Hawkins, she signs on as a test subject for the project, code-named MKULTRA. But behind the walls of Hawkins National Laboratory—and the piercing gaze of its director, Dr Martin Brenner—lurks a conspiracy greater than Terry could have ever imagined.

Are you excited to unravel the mysterious happenings in Stranger Things? Here are a few surprises that await you!

While the third season of Stranger Things will be released this coming July, after what feels like the longest wait for fans. But, if you’re missing much-needed news from Hawkins,  you can explore more of Eleven’s backstory in the book.

The book Stranger Things: Suspicious Minds is set much further back in time, in the year 1969 – 14 years before the TV show.

 It follows the journey of  Terry Ives, as she participates in the hush-hush CIA MKULTRA programme with Dr Brenner – not realising she was pregnant with Eleven, played by Millie Bobby Brown in the hit series, at the time. Fans will get to know the first glimpse at Eleven’s dad, and find out what exactly happened between Terry and him all those years ago.

While in season 2 of the show, viewers were introduced to Eleven’s sister, Kali, which proved to be quite divisive, Stanger Things: Suspicious Minds sheds light on some of the questions we all have about the show.

The book finally reveals how the Upside Down was first discovered, and why it’s so important to Dr. Brenner and the leaders of MKULTRA.

A mysterious lab. A sinister scientist. A secret history. If you think you know the truth behind Eleven’s mother, prepare to have your mind turned Upside Down in this thrilling prequel to the hit show Stranger Things.
