Uppercase Content Questions

What is Uppercase?

Uppercase is a young adult book-of-the-month subscription box. Simply put: You sign up and receive a recently published YA book and awesome book-related items every month! Plus you’ll access exclusive book content and a one-of-a-kind reading experience to dive deeper into each story.

What can I expect in my first box?

Uppercase offers two plans: Expert and Book Exclusive.

The Expert plan includes:

Every month you’ll receive the absolutely best young adult book that’s been personally read and chosen by Lisa Parkin, our founder. Plus, you’ll get a signed book plate with the author signature or the book will be personally signed by the author!

  • Brand New, Hardcover Young Adult Book
  • Signed Book or Bookplate Signed by the Author
  • 1-2 High-Quality, Exclusive Bookish Items
  • Reading Experience with Exclusive Content
  • Personal Hand-Written Note to You

The Book Exclusive plan includes:

The Book Exclusive Plan is the same as the Expert Plan without the exclusive items. This is a great option if you still want to get the best young adult books every month, plus the signed book plate or signed book in addition to the Uppercase exclusive reading experience.

The book you receive is the same book as the Expert Plan and you will still receive the Uppercase reading experience.

You will still receive any items that are related to the book chosen for the month in addition to promotional items.

  • Brand New, Hardcover Young Adult Book
  • Signed Book or Bookplate Signed by the Author
  • Reading Experience with Exclusive Content
  • Personal Hand-Written Note to You

What if I already have the book?

The book selections are all published the same month or the month prior to the current mailing. This ensures that you’re getting the very newest YA books.

At this time, if on the off chance a subscriber is sent a book they already own, we cannot refund it.

What books have been chosen in the past?
