It's the beginning of sophomore year, and Robin's Odd Squad friends have decided: this time, they're going to fit in. They couple up, they won't stop talking about college and their future careers, and they're obsessed with trying to act "normal." Robin knows that game well--she's been pretending for years, hoping nobody would notice the sarcastic polyglot French horn player with a bad perm in the back of the room. But there's one aspect of her identity that she knows for sure doesn't fit in with her carefully controlled image--something she's only just now realizing: Robin likes girls. How exactly is she supposed to be her true self in teeny-tiny Hawkins, Indiana? Robin is convinced the only way she can experience real life is by fleeing to Europe for the summer--aka Operation Croissant. But she has no money, no permission, and no one to share the adventure with--and it will take a heck of a lot more than that to escape Hawkins in one piece. Sprinkled with references to your favorite Stranger Things characters, this prequel chronicles one girl's realization that the only person she really needs to be accepted by is herself.

If you are looking for something to tie you over while you wait for the latest season of Stranger Things to be released - this book is for you. This story does a deep dive into Robin's life and her point of view of things happening in Hawkins. Robin is searching for a place to belong and it's not easy in this small town. Through her struggles to find her place, she begins to think the only place she can truly discover who she is and where she belongs is outside this tiny town of hers. But as fans of the show know, it is not always easy to leave Hawkins.

I liked knowing more about her and seeing the show's events/characters from a perspective we really don't get enough of in the series. This is a story of things that go bump in the night Hawkins style, the desire to run away to find answers, and the need to find self-acceptance in a world that often feels like it is spinning out of control. This book kept me engaged from start to finish. This can stand alone in connection to the story. Those who have not seen Stranger Things may have trouble understanding the big picture of the story and how Robin plays a part in a bigger storyline.
