May Parnassus Next Book Box
If you are looking for a book only subscription box, with no filler or extra goodies, than Parnassus Next could be the box for you! Its done by 3, 6, 9, 12 month subscriptions for a set price, Or you could be billed monthly, for the cost of the book and $6 shipping. I do the monthly plan, so it usually fluctuates in price a bit. Also another thing to be noted. Parnassus sends an email with the book selection for the following month. So it’s never really a surprise what book you are getting. But they do usually send a cute little surprise. This month it was a cute girl/boy under an umbrella pin. Parnassus Next, is one of my favorite book boxes, and I always feel like I get my moneys worth. The shipping is always on time, and there are never really any delays.
Each month, you’ll receive one beautifully packaged young adult book. No filler. And not just any book: a first edition, brand-new release, signed by the author. The books are carefully selected by the YA experts at Parnassus Books, who have years of bookstore experience and great relationships with authors and publishers.

The Last Boy and Girl In The World, by Siobhan Vivian What if your town was sliding underwater and everyone was ordered to pack up and leave? How would you and your friends spend your last days together?
While the adults plan for the future, box up their possessions, and find new places to live, Keeley Hewitt and her friends decide to go out with a bang. There are parties in abandoned houses. Canoe races down Main Street. The goal is to make the most of every minute they still have together.
And for Keeley, that means taking one last shot at the boy she’s loved forever.
There’s a weird sort of bravery that comes from knowing there’s nothing left to lose. You might do things you normally wouldn’t. Or say things you shouldn’t. The reward almost always outweighs the risk.
It’s the end of Aberdeen, but the beginning of Keeley’s first love story. It just might not turn out the way she thought. Because it’s not always clear what’s worth fighting for and what you should let become a memory. (from Amazon)
