Star Girl is a very good book by Jerry Spinelli. It was simple and very truthful. I would like to have read more about the neighborhood teacher and friend to all the high school kids. It is such a true story. Kids want to be cool and not stand out, but if there is one unique kid who stands out, than they are the target of ridicule and hatred. The kids who stand out are the individuals; the real and honest people who have so much to offer our world and to society. The kids who are reading this book are too young to appreciate it. Yea, you might sort of understand it, but not really. You need to be in high school to really understand uniqueness and the wonderful part of individualism. Teachers assign this book to younger grade levels, and that is an unfortunate mistake.
