Stargirl - 3M's Review

by Jerry Spinelli

2002, 186 pp.

Rating: 4

Stargirl is a high school girl who, refreshingly, does NOT try to be like everyone else. She marches to her own drummer. She is kind to everyone, almost to a fault. But does everyone love her for it or think she's too much of an oddity?

I enjoyed this book, though I winced a bit at the too familiar (though long ago) high school culture. A very good story for teens.

Cannot wait to read the sequel. I LOVED this and made a painted like the book cover for my craft room. A reminder to be ME.
