Book Summary from Amazon:
When Kate Thompson’s father is killed by the notorious Rose Riders for a mysterious journal that reveals the secret location of a gold mine, the eighteen-year-old disguises herself as a boy and takes to the gritty plains looking for answers and justice. What she finds are devious strangers, dust storms, and a pair of brothers who refuse to quit riding in her shadow. But as Kate gets closer to the secrets about her family, she gets closer to the truth about herself and must decide if there’s room for love in a heart so full of hate.In the spirit of True Grit, the cutthroat days of the Wild West come to life for a new generation.
And to go with the book: a signed bookplate sticker and a bookmark!
To Be Read List Notepad by Risa Rodil – Value $8?
I’m estimating on the value since this is an exclusive notepad designed for Uppercase Box subscribers. I think this is a perfect notepad for book lovers – and the artwork is cute too!
Juniper & Ivy Designs Golden Snitch Earrings – Value $14
These are such a great Harry Potter fan item! And I’m impressed with the materials used considering the price point:
These awesome Harry Potter Golden Snitch earrings are made from real Maple wood that is sustainably sourced from the USA. They have a nice deep etching that provides great contrast. The snitch is hand painted with 18kt gold paint.
The earrings are made with Titanium posts, they are hypoallergenic and nickel free.
Here is a photo of me holding them to give a better sense of scale:
They have some great Star Wars and Disney inspired earrings too!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $30 if you count the Amazon discounted price of the book. But considering this book also comes with a bookmark and signed bookplate sticker, to me, the value is higher than the sale price on Amazon.
And I love the curation of this subscription! I can’t wait to read Vengeance Road! What do you think of the September 2015 Uppercase box?
