About The Book of Barb

For the Barb in all of us.

In Stranger Things, Barb was a nerdy, faithful underdog – a minor character no one expected to break the internet. But Barb resonated with us – the chill, bespectacled BFF and her unjust abandonment hit a collective nerve. It turns out, in a world of Nancys, we are all Barb.

The Book of Barb is an unofficial celebration of TV’s most relatable, and tragic, bestie, bringing you inspiration from the ultimate wing woman and trend-setting style icon with fashion tips, quotes and life advice straight from the Upside Down.
