    Be the Star You Are! Is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) corporation that collects and distributes books to and produces positive media messages for women, families, and youth at risk as a way to improve literacy and raise life skills and self esteem. We GROW Leaders!

    Sujin Park is our teen chair person and she wants to invite volunteers age 10 and above who like to read to join her Teen STAR Book Review team. Adults are also welcome to become a reviewer. It is no longer mandatory to live in the Lamorinda area of Northern California as we can send you a list of books to be reviewed and you can get them at the library.

    Here is how it works: Be the Star You Are! charity office receives requests for reviews of books from authors and publishers that are geared for babies through teenagers. Our Teen STAR Book Reviewers read these books, then write an honest one page book review on how they liked the book. These reviews offer parents and other people an idea of what books would be good for what age level, thoughts are book content, and an opinion on whether the book is fun, entertaining, educational, or boring. The reviews are then sent to The Reading Tub, a non profit organization dedicated to turning a page and opening the world; to children through literacy where they publish our Teen STAR Book Reviewers reactions and recommendations. We publish them on our web site as well!
