This month’s letter is a little different, it includes a printed sheet detailing the items included, and a hand-written note from Lisa.

The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord – Retail Value $18 (On Amazon for $13.77)

I always include the Amazon prices for book subscription box reviews, but this is another instance where it’s not an entirely fair number to use, since this is a signed book:

Uppercase YA Book Subscription Box Review – April 2015 Signed

I’m not sure if all Uppercase books will be signed moving forward, but I hope so! (It’s such a great way to add value to a book subscription box).

Here is the synopsis of the book from Amazon:

Brimming with heartfelt relationships and authentic high-school dynamics The Start of Me and You proves that it’s never too late for second chances.

It’s been a year since it happened–when Paige Hancock’s first boyfriend died in an accident. After shutting out the world for two years, Paige is finally ready for a second chance at high school . . . and she has a plan. First: Get her old crush, Ryan Chase, to date her–the perfect way to convince everyone she’s back to normal. Next: Join a club–simple, it’s high school after all. But when Ryan’s sweet, nerdy cousin, Max, moves to town and recruits Paige for the Quiz Bowl team (of all things!) her perfect plan is thrown for a serious loop. Will Paige be able to face her fears and finally open herself up to the life she was meant to live?

These book magnets are adorable and super strong too!

Verdict: I’m so impressed with the April 2015 Uppercase box. The updates/improvements made since the last box have added so much value to this box! Plus I’ve loved both of the books from the past two boxes, so I already find value in knowing Lisa is a great curator, and I’ll probably love any book she sends.

  1. I’m definitely considering Uppercase after thinking about it the last couple of months and seeing the content/reviews. My biggest issue is the price, but I do like little goodies and getting a surprise in the mail is always fun so I’m thinking maybe the experience will make up for the cost. I just cancelled quite a few other subs recently, too, so I AM in the market for a new sub. Debating between Uppercase, Owlcrate, The Book Box, and LitCube though. There’s SO many book sub boxes out now!

    • I just signed up for Lit Cube after reading this comment! I can’t find The Book Box though, do you have a link? Thanks!

      • Ack! Sorry, it’s supposed to say The Bookworm Box. I’m looking forward to your review on LitCube. Have you heard of Fandom of the Month? It’s geeky jewelry.
