Dive into this revealing portrait of Stranger Things fan-favorite Lucas Sinclair and get to know Lucas like never before!
Lucas’s guide for surviving freshman year: make new friends, be yourself . . . and save Hawkins.
Lucas Sinclair is tired of feeling like an outsider. With Max dealing with her own problems, and Will and El leaving town, he has no one to lean on. And he could really use someone after the last few years of fighting monsters, dodging international spies, and the recent events at Starcourt. But then high school starts, and Lucas suddenly has options beyond playing D&D and being bullied. After connecting with someone on the basketball team—one of the few other Black students at school—Lucas begins to understand what it means to be a Black teen in Indiana, just as his town is plunged into trouble once again. Will Lucas be able to find his place in Hawkins in time to save it?
From Suyi Davies, contributor to the New York Times bestselling Black Boy Joy, comes an exploration of love and identity within the beloved Stranger Things universe through the eyes of Lucas Sinclair.
