TEEN STAR BOOK REVIEWER

Save to Favorites

Be the Star You Are

The Teen Writing & Radio Program
Founder, Cynthia Brian, with teen volunteers.

One of the most fun and rewarding volunteer positions is as a Teen STAR Book Reviewer. We invite volunteers age 10 and above who like to read to join our Teen STAR Book Review team. Adults are also welcome to become a reviewer. Here's 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 young adults. Our Teen STAR Book Reviewers read these books, then write an honest one-page book review on how they liked or disliked the book. These reviews offer parents, librarians, teachers, guardians, and other people an idea of what books would be good for what age level.

Volunteers may read most any book and we will send you a list of books that our partner would like to have reviewed. Book reviews will be published at their site and also at http://www.BTSYA.org.

Reviews need to include your original thoughts on book content as well as opinions on whether the book is fun, entertaining, educational, or boring.

Three hours of community service credits are given for each review submitted. We do sign community service forms after completion of at least 5 reviews or 15 hours of credit.

Guidelines and information will be sent when you request to be a volunteer STAR Teen Book Reviewer.

For more information or to join the team, email: info@bethestaryouare.org

Thank you. Keep on reading and writing! We look forward to working with you to help in increasing literacy and positive messages through this extraordinary book review program.
