TAG! You’re it! This or That!

Hello you beautiful bookish fiends you! My dear Sleepy Sam Reads tagged me in a brilliant and twisty bookish version of This or That, which she originally saw on Rain’s blog and I'm glad she did because it has been a while since I've been tagged! So, thank you my dear! I will be adding one question at the end (shhh...) I can't stick to the college themed week that everyone else is celebrating but just remember, as we get this party started.....

ARC Review of The Sacrifice Box by Martin Stewart: Four out of Five Stars

What are the rules of the Fight Club?

You do not talk about Fight Club.
You DO NOT talk about Fight Club!
If someone yells "stop!", goes limp, or taps out, the fight is over.
Fourth rule: only two guys to a fight.
You might be asking why I'm bringing up Fight Club in a review of Sacrifice Box but lets be honest. Is there ever not a good time to bring up Fight Club? And did it ever go well to break the rules of Fight Club? Right. Plus, like Fight club, this box has a set of rules.

Never come to the box alone.
Never open it after Dark.
Never take back your sacrifice.
All seems straightforward, right? When is anything straight forward for twelve-year-olds I ask you. Taking a lot of the best parts of Stephen King, Stewart starts off Stand by Me and goes straight to It in Final Jeopardy, without the thirty-year time skip (well, not for Mack, Hadley, Lamb, Arkle, and Sept).
