Book Summary from Amazon:
Caroline Oresteia is destined for the river. Her father is a wherryman, as was her grandmother. All Caro needs is for the river god to whisper her name, and her fate is sealed. But at seventeen, Caro may be too late.
So when pirates burn ships and her father is arrested, Caro volunteers to transport mysterious cargo in exchange for his release. Secretly, Caro hopes that by piloting her own wherry, the river god will finally speak her name.
But when the cargo becomes more than Caro expected, she finds herself caught in a web of politics and lies. With much more than her father’s life at stake, Caro must choose between the future she knows, and the one she could have never imagined.
And Uppercase also included a map of The Riverlands.
Lisa got me excited about this book as soon as I read the note. Do I like pirates, quests, mystery, and romance?
I love Caro as the main character, too!
Jubly Umph Originals Enamel Pin – Value $14
This is an Uppercase subscriber exclusive design! I’m getting into enamel pins for my backpack, so I’m happy to see this in the box!
Reading Adventure Tote Bag – Value $12?
This is an Uppercase exclusive tote design so I’m guessing in the value. (I’m also loving that book lovin’ cat!)
Verdict: This box has a value of about $37. (Using the Amazon sale price of the book.) That’s a good value this month, and I love both the book and the bookish goodies this month. (I feel like Uppercase has been doing a fab job at finding super cute book nerd items lately!)
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!
