Book Summary from Amazon:
A fun, romantic read, perfect for fans of Sarah Dessen and Susane Colasanti! What happens when Matt and Ella reunite one year after their breakup? Are second chances really possible?
Before Matt, Ella had a plan. Get over her ex-boyfriend and graduate high school—simple as that. But Matt—the cute, shy, bespectacled bass player—was never part of that plan. And neither was attending a party that was crashed by the cops just minutes after they arrived. Or spending an entire night saying “yes” to every crazy, fun thing they could think of.
But then Matt leaves town, breaking Ella’s heart. And when he shows up a year later—wanting to relive the night that brought them together—Ella isn’t sure whether Matt’s worth a second chance. Or if re-creating the past can help them create a different future.
Observant Owls Book Buddies – Value $6
I subscribe to a few different book and bookish boxes, and I think Owl Crate is winning when it comes to adorable bookish accessory items. These will be good for the tiniest of notes!
Showpony Until the Very End Bracelet – Value $13
Even though I don’t usually wear silver jewelry, this bracelet makes me happy! (Pretty much any Harry Potter item inclusion in a box will make me happy though!)
This fold-out set includes 30 super awesome postcards featuring things like…
Black Holes! (Other super awesome postcard subjects: Big Foot, Wizards, Bacon, etc.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $41 (using Amazon discounted pricing). I think that’s a great value for a book subscription box, and I really have been enjoying my Owl Crate subscription so far! Looking at the reviews for The Night We Said Yes, I’m not sure if it will be a book for me, but I’m going to give it a try.
