It’s the summer of 1969, and the shock of conflict reverberates through the youth of America. As a student at a quiet college campus in the heartland of Indiana, Terry Ives couldn’t be farther from the front lines of Vietnam or the protests in Washington.

But the world is changing, and Terry isn’t content to watch. When word gets around about an important government experiment in the small town of Hawkins, she signs on as a test subject for the project, code-named MKULTRA. The remote lab, deep in the woods, contains a mystery Terry is determined to uncover.

Behind the walls of Hawkins National Laboratory—and the piercing gaze of its director, Dr. Martin Brenner—lurks a conspiracy greater than Terry could have ever imagined. To face it, she’ll need the help of her fellow test subjects, including a young girl with unexplainable superhuman powers and a number instead of a name: 008.

Amid the rising tensions of the new decade, Terry Ives and Martin Brenner have begun a different kind of war—one where the human mind is the battlefield.

Suspicious Minds is a prequel to the Netflix show Stranger Things. This story focuses around the Eleven's mom, Terry Ives in the late 60s/early 70s. This can stand alone as a supernatural thriller or be a great companion novel to the series giving insight into Terry, Eleven, and Dr.Brenner.

As a fan of Gwenda Bond, Suspicious MInds does not disappoint. Bond does an excellent job adding more to the world of Stranger Things while providing a unique look inside MKULTRA and creating a page-turning story.

Viewers of the series will already know the ending to Terry's story, but to have the ability to go back in time and witness the mystery of her teen years and the identity of Eleven's father makes the journey to the end of the novel exhilarating. Fans of Stranger Things, supernatural thrillers, and conspiracy mysteries will love reading Suspicious Minds.
