From the bestselling author of Meet Me in the Margins comes an insightful tale that inspires personal growth and learning to enjoy things in the moment.

With her millions of followers, she is adored around the world. But when an app partnership goes very, very wrong, she suddenly finds herself shunned from the community that not only fed her soul all these years but paid her bills. When her uncle offers her a position on his staff at a small national park in Montana to get away from the city, she hesitantly accepts the opportunity.

What she doesn’t realize is that as their new social media strategist her goal is to save the park by boosting their annual number of visitors through fun posts and social media engagement. Unfortunately, at least one of her new colleagues thinks social media is the root of everything that’s wrong with the world and makes her goals that much harder to reach.

Written with the author's signature wit and charm, this story will melt readers’ hearts while reminding us to put down our phones and live life to the fullest. A story that may just inspire you to change your life, this book will be paired with four adorable gifts that will bring the best moments right into the palms of your hands.

On sale through June 14th (or until we sell out) this box is not one to miss. Snap a pic for the 'gram while you can and subscribe now! Boxes are expected to ship at the end of June.

Potential triggers in the June adult box include minor descriptions of a car crash and addiction.

A mermaid banished from their kingdom by her brother as he tries to keep his throne. A curse that turns her human and strips her of her magic. A warning that if she ever returns, she will become a monster.

After washing up on the shores of Atlantis, a kind merchant helps her to build a life on land. Finding a place in the Atlantean army, she is finally given the chance to become the warrior she believes she can be, and when she discovers a powerful trident that could restore her path home is within her grasp, she must make the hardest choice of all. But legends are powerful forces and her true identity must stay a secret, for fear of the humans who would burn her if they discovered what she truly was.
