I didn’t even know there were Stranger Things novels like Stranger Things: Runaway Max by Brenna Yovanoff out there in the world! It makes sense, now that I think about it, but I suppose the thought just never occurred to me. Now, I love the show but I have to admit that I am somewhat hesitant to read related novels. In my experience, they never quite live up to the show and the characters are always off somehow. So, I dunno about this one.
Don't miss this gripping, emotional prequel to the hit Netflix series, Stranger Things! The never-before-told backstory of the beloved Dig Dug maven, Max Mayfield, written by New York Times bestselling author Brenna Yovanoff. This must-read novel, based on the hit Netflix series, Stranger Things, explores Max's past--the good and the bad--as well as how she came to find her newfound sense of home in Hawkins, Indiana.
