It arrived to me with the package neatly cut open with scissors and then it was all sealed up inside a clear plastic packaging. There was no note from the USPS saying this was inspected but that must have been what it was! Oh, and the package was very dirty and blackened.
I am surprised that the inspection and the mailing took seven and a half weeks!
Well now it is confirmed that the USPS does definitely inspect some of the media mail packages!
If you were wondering what it was, it is a book being sent to me by the author for a review. The title is Sentinel City of Destiny by Landel Bilbrey and it is for readers aged eight and older. It is an allegorical tale. I have not read it yet so I can’t say much about it but there are a total of four customer reviews, all are 5 star, on Amazon.com and you can read what they think of it by clicking the below link.
Here is a summary from the publisher.
Today, as never before, a young boy's life is bombarded by subtle and not so subtle messages of how the world defines the "successful" man. The purpose of Sentinel, City of Destiny is to share with boys, during their formative pre-teen years, some fundamental character traits that define the "Godly" man. The allegorical story is about twin brothers, Jerol and Jarad, their quest through the land of Callow (Childhood) and their search for the city of Sentinel (representing true Manhood).
