Synopsis: It's hard to keep close a person everyone keeps telling you is gone.

It's been sixty-five painful days since the death of Juniper's big sister, Camilla. On her first day back at school, bracing herself for the stares and whispers, Juniper borrows Camie's handbag for luck - and discovers an unsent break-up letter inside. It's mysteriously addressed to 'You' and dated July 4th - the day of Camie's accident. Desperate to learn the identity of Camie's secret love, Juniper starts to investigate.

But then she loses something herself. A card from her daily ritual, The Happiness Index: little notecards on which she rates the day. The Index has been holding Juniper together since Camie's death - but without this card, there's a hole. And this particular card contains Juniper's own secret: a memory that she can't let anyone else find out.

LootArt: My Dream Crate

So a while ago Loot Crate contacted me asking if I'd like to put together a post about my very own Dream Crate as they'd like to see what items other people would but in their ideal subscription boxes.

As a book worm I obviously love reading but there are already so many book subscription boxes now that it seems silly to dream of one. Instead my ideal dream crate is as follows:
 2 - 3 graphic novels depending on price
an art print
a pin or sticker
and an item with some art on.

So its a pretty flexible idea with a theme that focuses on Graphic Novels and illustrators as I feel they go hand in hand very well. The items I included in the image are Gal Pals pin by Jen Bartel, Trash Dove mug by Syd Weiler, Shadow of the Colossus print by Annie Stoll, Godshaper (written by Simon Spurrier and illustrated by Jonas Goonface, Paper Girls (written by Brian K. Vaughan and illustrated by Cliff Chiang + Matt Wilson), and Spell on Wheels (written by Kate Leth, illustrated by Megan Levens, and varient cover by Jen Bartel).

So what'd you think? Reckon you'd be interested in subscription box like this or do you have your own better idea?

(Please note whilst LootCrate did contact me about this post they didn't compensate me in any way)
