Title: The Box
Author: Christina G Gaudet
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance
Pages 290


Some gifts should be left unopened.

When her gran passes away, the only item left to Lou is a small wooden box. Although it’s not the car that her sister, Cindy, receives, Lou knows it could have been worse. She could have gotten Gran’s collection of toenails. When Lou opens the box and a guy the size of a stick of gum falls out; she changes her mind – the nail clippings would have been better.

Not a day goes by that Lou doesn’t wish she could shove that guy back in the box and pretend she’d never laid eyes on him. Because of him, she discovered Gran was a sorceress and Cindy is a witch and all these years they have been keeping Lou’s magic locked away “for her own safety.” Without the magic she’s vulnerable to whoever, or whatever, is after her. With it, she’s a target for a fate worth than death.

Christina Gaudet (christinaggaudet) | 2 comments Hi everyone! Thanks so much for grabbing the copies of The Box so fast. Just thought I'd mention that I noticed there are two versions of the book listed on Goodreads, but the one most people have been leaving their reviews on is this one Since it's also linked to my author page, I'd love if you could post your reviews there.
Thanks again!

Jennifer (StillyAspieMom) Here is my review. Thanks for the READ !

The Box (Book #1)The Box by Christina Gaudet

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I recieved this book in exchange for an honest review.

Overall the book was decent. It was very fast paced and easy to follow which was a major plus. Once I was able to get into the book it was an easy read and finished it with ease.

I did however find it very hard to start; not for lack of easiness, but trying to follow the plot line. The book hit the ground running it seemed part way up the climax. It would have been nice had the story started earlier and given a bit more of a back story, but that may also just be me. I felt that the story had no beginning or end as it ended just abruptly as it began. The story was almost like (and excuse the metophor) starting the movie Titanic when it hits the iceburg and ending it when the ship sank. It needed more.

That being said, I am sure that for people that enjoy reading YA Fantasy that it would be very enjoyable and leave them begging for more.
