One Box = One Book

Literacy is so important, but the unfortunate reality is that not everyone has access to the books and tools they need. Second Star Books is proud and excited to be able to help out however we can. For every box we send out, we also donate a book to a child in need. We work directly with underfunded schools and libraries, as well as with existing literacy charities.

Love for our September book

"Readers who are tired of the same recycled story lines will find something original here...The story is so compelling that readers have to keep going to find out how, or if [she] gets out of this mess."

– School Library Journal

"[A] morally complex, edgy debut...[the author's] antiheroes show empathy and insight as they struggle to define the line between human and monster. It’s a testament to [the] excellent writing that these themes never overtake the characters’ stories."

– Booklist, STARRED review
