YA First Editions Club

What is the YA First Editions Club?

The Blue Willow YA First Editions Club is a monthly subscription program, featuring a first edition young adult book, signed on a special book plate by the author and hand-selected by our Teen Advisory Board. (Plus some exclusive extras!)

What's included in the subscription?

Each month, you will receive a hand-wrapped young adult hardcover book. Each book has been thoroughly vetted and selected by our Teen Advisory Board, a group of talented local teen readers and reviewers.

Your first edition hard cover will be signed by the author on a special bookplate and arrives along with an array of exclusive extras, including unique author content (such as a teen-led Q&A or video interview), a branded book mark, a review from one of our advisory board members, and a special audiobook recommendation, chosen by each month's author. 

It's a tailormade reading experience, brought to you by experts who love to read as much as you do.

Who is the YA First Editions Club for?

This subscription is perfect for every reader who loves YA. Whether you're a book blogger, influencer, collector, weekend reader, or just someone who loves a good story—this program was designed for you. It's also the perfect gift for your favorite YA reader.

Okay, so what's the first book pick?

Our subscription program launches in September. From a selection of amazing upcoming YA releases, our Teen Advisory Board has voted for the inaugural month to feature... The Black Kids by Christina Hammonds Reed! (Note: The book was scheduled to publish on September 1st back when our board voted on it; due to the pandemic, the book's publishing date was altered to now release on August 4th. Future monthly picks will publish in the month you receive the package.)

With rave reviews from our Board, we know you're going to love this unforgettable story. The book picks for future months will be announced soon!
