Book Summary from Amazon:
Dill has had to wrestle with vipers his whole life—at home, as the only son of a Pentecostal minister who urges him to handle poisonous rattlesnakes, and at school, where he faces down bullies who target him for his father’s extreme faith and very public fall from grace.
He and his fellow outcast friends must try to make it through their senior year of high school without letting the small-town culture destroy their creative spirits and sense of self. Graduation will lead to new beginnings for Lydia, whose edgy fashion blog is her ticket out of their rural Tennessee town. And Travis is content where he is thanks to his obsession with an epic book series and the fangirl turning his reality into real-life fantasy.
Their diverging paths could mean the end of their friendship. But not before Dill confronts his dark legacy to attempt to find a way into the light of a future worth living.
I’ve heard nothing but great things about this book, and it was already in my Amazon shopping cart, so I’m very excited about this month’s book selection!
And this book also comes with a letter from the author and a quote card.
Out of Print Banned Books Socks – Value $10
I love getting bookish socks in subscription boxes! I can’t even explain it, but I’m always happy to see cute socks in these boxes! On one sock the book titles are censored, and on the other sock the titles are visible:
Bookworm Boutique Pins – Value $4?
These were made exclusively for OwlCrate. Here are the quotes on the pins:

642 Tiny Things to Write About – Value $7
This is a perfect addition for a “Writer’s Block” themed box! Each page has multiple writing prompts:
I think this could be fun to do outloud with friends as a game, too!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $40 (using the Amazon sale prices). I think that’s a good value for a book box, especially with the curation and bonus book extras that OwlCrate includes each month. I love the “Writer’s Block” theme and items this month, and I can’t wait to read The Serpent Kind – I think this is one of my favorite OwlCrates!
