Book Summary from Amazon:
Solara Brooks needs a fresh start, someplace where nobody cares about the engine grease beneath her fingernails or the felony tattoos across her knuckles. The outer realm may be lawless, butit’s not like the law has ever been on her side.Still, off-world travel doesn’t come cheap; Solara is left with no choice but to indenture herself in exchange for passage to the outer realm. She just wishes it could have been to anyone besides Doran Spaulding, the rich, pretty-boy quarterback who made her life miserable in school.The tables suddenly turn when Doran is framed for conspiracy on Earth, and Solara cons him into playing the role of her servant on board the Banshee, a ship manned by an eccentric crew with their own secrets. Given the price on both Doran and Solara’s heads, it may just be the safest place in the universe.It’s been a long time since Solara has believed in anyone, and Doran is the last person she expected to trust. But when the Banshee’s dangerous enemies catch up with them, Solara and Doran must come together to protect the ship that has become their home-and the eccentric crew that feels like family.

This box also came with a Starflight mini poster:
And the Starflight goodies continue!
Starflight Nail Wraps – Value $5?
I didn’t even realize these were Starflight branded until I looked closely:
Anne of Green Gables Infinity Scarf – Value $20?
This item is an exclusive for Uppercase Box subscribers! What a unique and perfectly bookish item! Here it is in all its circle scarf glory:
I love the colors too – perfect for spring!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $36 counting the Amazon sale price of the book. But since the book is signed, I think the value would be higher for a lot of book lovers! I think this is one of my favorite Uppercase boxes yet – it is a perfect mix of exclusives and book extras!
