The 14-year-old, who stars as Eleven in the TV show, has had a spate of bad news recently. On Thursday (14 June) she deleted her Twitter account after users posted memes depicting her as homophobic.

In other news, Stranger Things is going to be made into a book series. A prequel will detail more of Eleven’s backstory.

Deadline have confirmed that Penguin Random House Books UK have partnered with Netflix to publish the books in the UK. It’ll reportedly be about Eleven’s mother, Terri, and it’ll explore her involvement in the MKUltra program (which was the program in which Eleven got her powers).
