Book summary from Amazon:
Whistling past the graveyard. That’s what Daddy called it when you did something to keep your mind off your most worstest fear. . . .
In the summer of 1963, nine-year-old Starla Claudelle runs away from her strict grandmother’s Mississippi home. Starla’s destination is Nashville, where her mother went to become a famous singer, abandoning Starla when she was three. Walking a lonely country road, Starla accepts a ride from Eula, a black woman traveling alone with a white baby. Now, on the road trip that will change her life forever, Starla sees for the first time life as it really is—as she reaches for a dream of how it could one day be.
And the book is signed!
This box also came with an Indie Bound flyer for additional book recommendations.
Verdict: I like that The Book Drop is starting to include additional perks for subscribers like a signed book. The value for this box isn’t great – $9.55 on Amazon for a $20 box, but occasionally they include a bonus book, so the value will be a little better over a few months. If you value signed books, and a thoughtfully curated book, this subscription might be worth it to you!
