In My Mailbox (8)

I haven't done an In My Mailbox (hosted by The Story Siren) post in a long, long time. Mostly, I stopped doing this because I was ordering so many books for my classroom that it was going to take me forever (and seem rather excessive) if I showed you all what was coming in.

But, I am breaking this hiatus for one very special package that came in today's mail. As most all of you know by now, I am a huge fan of dystopias. I look forward to a good "world gone wrong" book more than any other. Don't know why, but I do. So, it is with the utmost in (im)patience that I have awaited the arrival of Michael Northrup's Trapped. As it turns out, it was well worth the wait!

Why? Because it came with a cute little polar bear Silly Band bracelet. So cute! Here's a picture:

But, most of all, it came with a note. To me! It's just plain awesome.

I am so excited to read this book. I'm thinking that this weekend will be a perfect time to dive in--It's supposed to be in the mid-teens (in temperature)(Fahrenheit) in Maine and snowy this weekend. My imagination won't have to strain too much to picture this setting!

My review will come toward the end of January, so I'll let you know what I think then. This title will be released in early February.
