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 June book

"... a rollercoaster ride that doesn't stop spinning until the final pages. With complex characters, smartly paced scenes, and a thrilling conclusion, this book has everything I look for in a mystery novel. A riveting and entertaining read."

– Paula Stokes, author of Liars, Inc.

“[An] intricately plotted debut thriller… Just when it seems that a resolution is in sight, more surprises build to an explosive, satisfying finale.”

– Publishers Weekly
