What to Read After Watching "Stranger Things"

September 15, 2016

In the supernatural/horror/mystery television drama "Stranger Things," a young boy goes missing in small town Indiana in the 1980s. His mother, the police chief, and his friends must face a superatural monster and a top-secret government facility to get him back. 

 

This series, which premiered on Netflix back in July, has captivated viewers young and old with its suspense, gripping storylines and wildly original characters.
