Unique
Okay so I just finished reading Stargirl. It was for sure unique and really has a good point. I love how Stargirl can be herself around everyone. Jerry Spinelli is by far my favorite "young adult"/childrens author.

Try reading his book "Milkweed" I loved it too.

best book ever
The book by Jerry Spinelli is the best book I have read. I love the romance between Leo and Stargirl it is soo cute. And when she changes to a normal girl that was cool. All I can say is I love that book!!!

In this thrilling adventure Jerry Spinelli has shown peer pressure through a highschoolers eyes by showing how kids want to fit in and be with the crowd. It also shows how love can bloom into something beautiful if you believe. This heartwarming tale will have you on the edge of your seat. Stargirl is a wonderful book for all types of people from pre-teens to adults this book will make you start thinking.

Star Girl
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.

Good Message - Bad Book
My whole class had to read this book for Lit. Most of the boys hated it except for one. (this boy is not me)! My opinion is that it started out good but 1/3 of the way through I lost interest. NO BOY WOULD EVER PICK UP THIS BOOK!
