    Summary

    Steve doesn’t realize it until July, until after everything has happened, but he’s known Billy Hargrove for years. He’s not sure how he figures it out. It’s sometime after stripping out of his destroyed Scoops uniform, but before scrubbing the blood off his face, before he digs into those bruises just hard enough to hurt. It’s not shocking or startling. It doesn’t knock him off his feet.

    &

    The red light turns green and Steve pulls through it. He’s looking straight ahead, out into the snow and the cold night air when he says, “He doesn’t remember.”

    He hears more than sees El shrug again. “No,” she says finally. “But he will.”

    -

    Steve remembers something important, but just barely. He has questions. In December, he gets to ask them. Billy--in the same concrete room the doctors have had him in since July--has questions too.

    Summary

    It’s January 15, 1985. Max is in Hawkins, Indiana, 2,082 miles from Santa Monica, and in five hours she’ll be fourteen years old. At fourteen, you can be tried as adult. She knows because Billy’s told her, so many times.

    It’s January 15, ninety-five days since the worst thing she’s ever done, but there isn’t any statute of limitations on that.

    (Or, Max is miserable, Billy's in danger, and Steve just wants to help. A take on why Max and Billy moved to Hawkins in the first place, featuring too many 80's songs and also a love story, maybe two.)

    Summary

    Billy's used to being afraid of his father, and he knows he's not the only one scared. But it's one thing to know your stepmother gets smacked around every once in a while and another thing completely to find her body on the bathroom floor.

    He's a mess, Max is even more of a mess, and Joyce Byers is a queen among mothers, she really is.
