Book: Stargirl 🌟🚺

Author: Jerry Spinelli

607412-_uy200_

This book is told from the point of view of Leo, a shy, quiet boy who lives in Arizona. When the mysterious Stargirl moves to Leo’s school Leo is befuddled and intrigued by Stargirl’s floor length pioneer dresses, bright and wide eyes and stand-out actions. Most people just think she’s crazy but Leo thinks there is more to Stargirl than what meets the eye. When Leo falls for Stargirl everybody thinks he shouldn’t and Leo thinks what everyone else thinks is important whereas Stargirl doesn’t care in the slightest. Desperate to fit in, Leo pressures Stargirl to be the very thing that will destroy her. Normal. So she becomes ‘normal.’ Stargirl no longer wears pioneer dresses. She wears jeans. Stargirl now wears make-up. She joins the cheer-leading squad. Stargirl stops dropping pennies on the pavement to make someone’s day. She stops singing to people on their birthday. Then Stargirl disappears. She’s gone. Forever. Leo then has to adjust to life without the love of his life.
This is an incredibly moving, outstanding and brave book about daring to be different, about not caring what other people think and BEING YOURSELF. It is a book that will stay in your mind long after you read it. A book that changed my mind about what people think of me.
