Meet the Creators

Kirsten & Aiyven are 13 & 11 year old sister-writers who are completely mad about books. Voracious readers & book reviewers, they have each written & published a middle grade novel . They also do children & middle grade book reviews on Facebook & YouTube all in the hope of promoting literacy and diversity in middle-grade literature. Their plan is simple "To make reading cool by sharing their love for reading & writing with everyone!"

With the Happier Every Chapter subscription box, they aim to create an engaged community of readers through monthly boxes of bookish bliss for 8 - 14 year olds. Boxes come crammed with 2 highly curated books (incl. a diverse read), short stories (written by the girls), activity sheets, exclusive author goodies and 4 - 6 other thoughtfully chosen bookish treats / lifestyle items. All curation & selection done by the girls themselves....for tweens/teens by tweens/teens!
