Scythe by Neal Shusterman

I heard a little about this book and it sounds really good.

Retail Value:  $18.99  Amazon Price:  $11.40

Goodreads Rating:  4.32 stars

Goodreads Synopsis:

A world with no hunger, no disease, no war, no misery. Humanity has conquered all those things, and has even conquered death. Now scythes are the only ones who can end life—and they are commanded to do so, in order to keep the size of the population under control.
Citra and Rowan are chosen to apprentice to a scythe—a role that neither wants. These teens must master the “art” of taking life, knowing that the consequence of failure could mean losing their own.

The box also included a letter from the author!

My Thoughts:  I loved all the items in the Young Adult Litjoy Crate.  I can't wait to read Scythe because it sounds really interesting and I loved all the other items included in the box.  My favorite items were the Readers Gonna Read Zipper Pouch and the 2017 Mini Calendar.  I think this is a wonderful box for young adult book lovers.
