Book Summary from Amazon:

When Autumn Collins finds herself accidentally locked in the library for an entire weekend, she doesn’t think things could get any worse. But that’s before she realizes that Dax Miller is locked in with her. Autumn doesn’t know much about Dax except that he’s trouble. Between the rumors about the fight he was in (and that brief stint in juvie that followed it) and his reputation as a loner, he’s not exactly the ideal person to be stuck with. Still, she just keeps reminding herself that it is only a matter of time before Jeff, her almost-boyfriend, realizes he left her in the library and comes to rescue her.

Only he doesn’t come. No one does.

Instead it becomes clear that Autumn is going to have to spend the next couple of days living off vending-machine food and making conversation with a boy who clearly wants nothing to do with her. Except there is more to Dax than meets the eye. As he and Autumn at first grudgingly, and then not so grudgingly, open up to each other, Autumn is struck by their surprising connection. But can their feelings for each other survive once the weekend is over and Autumn’s old life, and old love interest, threaten to pull her from Dax’s side?

And every Uppercase box book is signed by the author:

I finished this book in a day – it was a cute, fun and easy read. Plus I liked the locked-in-the-library start to this book – it reminded me of The Breakfast Club! If you like Kasie West’s books, I’m almost certain you’ll like this one, too.

This loose tea is a blend of rooibos, peppermint, and chamomile. It’s naturally caffeine-free and perfect for nighttime reading!

Verdict: This box has a value of about $34. This box seemed a little light on the non-book items this month, but the value is still there for me, and I love that we got an exclusive hardcover signed book this month.

I’m almost always happy with this subscription. I think the curation is great, and it seems like my taste in YA books is similar to Lisa’s so that works out very well!

What do you think of this month’s Uppercase box?
