So the time has nearly come to send out our September Outlaws boxes and we know that for a fact, because Book Box Club HQ is a city of boxes as all of the lovely books and box items wait to be lovingly packed. We can’t wait to send this next box out to you as it marks our very exciting first birthday! Woo hoo!
As we are in celebratory mood, we thought it was high time we shared with you all of the lovely items we included in our FEARLESS FEMALES August box. We LOVED putting together this box; we got really carried away with all the female empowerment and found ourselves shouting about women’s rights to anyone who would listen. Our August theme was one that was very close to our hearts. Being a total boss girl in the 21st Century is a tricky balancing act so we were thrilled to have the chance to celebrate female solidarity, strength, compassion and all round awesomeness! Hooray!
FEARLESS FEMALES UNBOXED
THINGS A BRIGHT GIRL CAN DO BY SALLY NICHOLLS: Evelyn, May and Nell. Three inspiring young women thrust into the chaos of war, politics and the fight for equal rights.

An unforgettable novel that will leave you punching the air in girl power solidarity!
