Sierra Burgess Is A Loser

If you're a fan of Netflix shows like us then you'll know what we mean when we say that we've been constantly asking ourselves what happened to Barb from Stranger Things? Well, in reality, Shannon Purser (who played Barb) has been busy prepping for a new Netflix original film role. The film, titled Sierra Burgess Is A Loser, tells the story of mistaken identity, which then leads to an unexpected romance.
