I Think These Series Need The Special Treatment By A Book Box

Recently book boxes (specifically FairyLoot and Illumicrate) have been releasing special editions of (YA) older series. The books are older so tend to be out of print or tricky to find. The box releases a new edition with exclusive cover and are offered signed or not signed.

Yes, it is a good adventure series but it also explores some deep issues (civil war; terrorism; genocide) that could make for some really fascinating discussions.

Okay, okay. Enough of me yammering. Let’s get to the trailer.
