Stranger Things: Rebel Robin

We rated this book:


It’s the beginning of sophomore year and Robin, along with her Odd Squad friends, have decided: this time, they’re going to fit in. Robin has always viewed her school, town, and peers differently. She has always seen the stupidity of public continuous education and the simple-minded need of her fellow students to belong for what it is, a greedy desire to push up the social ladder. Despite her private frustrations, she has finally decided to take part in the process.

Stranger Things: Rebel Robin by A. R. Capetta it is a prequel novel to the third season and focuses on Robin Buckley struggling through her sophomore year. For a character who would play a major part in the third season of the popular Netflix series, it is refreshing to see more of her story and dive deeper into her personality. For many, the highlight of the third season was the inclusion of the Scoops Ahoy splinter team; here, one of the best aspects of the story is the introduction of Robin’s entertaining circle of friends.

If you are a fan of Stranger Things, it is essentially a game-changer; if you are a fan of Robin, then it is essential reading, period! Capetta is a brilliant writer who was able to masterfully capture this engaging screen character and place her on paper. Likewise, Hawkins High comes to life throughout this great book. Robin is the perfect vehicle for such an exploration because we all knew a rebel without a cause like Robin.
