    Summary

    “I see it,” Will says quietly. “It’s real.”

    There’s blood in the pool. So much blood. Wisps and streaks of it that dye the water purple. He blinks over and over and over, but it’s still there, vivid and impossible to ignore. The cotton suddenly clogging his chest tells him it’s real. He’s seen things for the last several years, visions and flashes and nightmares every time he closes his eyes, but they’ve never been real. Knowing that it was all in his fucked-up head was his one relief, but now he doesn’t even have that reassurance.

    Summary

    It's been six months since El escaped from the lab - six months since she stumbled through the woods and found Jim Hopper, the local police chief who takes her in and gives her a home.

    Together, they devise a plan to protect her from the sinister people who might still be looking for her, which includes finding somewhere safe for her to go during Hopper's three weekly night shifts at the station. Using a cover story, he gets her a part-time job at Benny's Burgers, where late night customers are scarce and won't ask too many questions.

    The rules are simple: lay low, keep to yourself, and avoid talking to anyone at length. El longs to lead a normal life outside of these confines - but, afraid of losing everything, she follows Hopper's guidelines without any trouble.

    Until one night, a boy with kind eyes and a warm smile comes in, wondering why he's never seen her around Hawkins before.

    Summary

    "She told me marriage was a trap, it was a lie, and she’d swore she’d never get caught in it.

    She didn’t believe in love but even after hearing her fairly strong arguments against it..

    I still did."

    Or an angst ridden memoir in which Mike believes in love and El doesn't. But eventually one of them will change their mind.

    Summary

    Eighteen years old and recently graduated from high school, Mike Wheeler is ready to make the most of his last summer with the Party before they each head off to college and their separate ways for the first time ever. Everything about it is bittersweet, everything seeming like the very last time.

    And then, like a dream, the pretty daughter of Chief Jim Hopper rolls into town for the summer. El Hopper is like nothing Hawkins, Indiana, or Mike, has ever seen: New York-bred, beautiful, smart, and soon, oddly enough, an honorary member of the Party of town outcasts.

    Beneath the haze of shimmering heat and golden sunshine, Mike and El fall into that first summer love—the kind that makes you remember salted lips and sticky skin and sentiments whispered in hushed breath, no matter how many years try to erase the memories. That first and final love.

    As summer comes to a close, and disparate futures loom, El and Mike are forced to learn that August is the cruelest month. But time doesn't heal all wounds, and they come to find that a love that strong never goes down without a fight.
