In the latest installment of the Fear Street series, The Sleepwalker, we see Mayra sleepwalking down to Fear Lake. It’s actually kind of terrifying if you think about it. Even the most relaxed person likes to have a semblance of control over their life. To have a sleepwalking problem is basically having no conscious control over what you are doing. Mayra almost drowns in Fear Lake in her sleep. Terrifying.
Surge and Anna do make light of it at times, but seriously, if you have this problem, go get a sleep study done. We also come off pretty judgey about how her mom handles it. Which, hey, we’re not parents. Maybe it’s not fair for us to do that. Props to her mom for trying her best.
On a lighter note, we did struggle in figuring out how to pronounce Mayra. We couldn’t decide if it was like “Myra” or maybe “May-ra”, so we just went all out and found a different perhaps unique way. It actually sounds pretty cool, but you need to listen to find out how.
Anna also reviewed The Animators by Kayla Rae Whitaker at the start. It’s a stellar book about friendship and unbreakable bonds that people should definitely check out. For a longer review you have to listen to the episode!
On that note, listen to Episode 07 – Fear Street 6: The Sleepwalker on Spreaker.
