The Lovereading4Kids comment
An incredibly touching story about a girl who dared to be different. A wonderfully original and memorable read for it makes you realise that tweens and teens work too hard these days to conform and be the same in order not to be different. It’s a real breath of fresh air and the message from it to everyone is that it’s better to be different and have an individuality. It’s a life-changing and thought-provoking read that will touch all who read it whatever their age. Other titles by Jerry Spinelli include Love, Stargirl, Eggs, Milkweed.
Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli
She's as magical as the desert sky, and as mysterious as her own name. Nobody knows who she is or where she's from. But everyone loves her for being different. And, she captures Leo's heart with just one smile. "Stargirl" is a classic of our time that celebrates being true to ourselves and the thrill of first love. It is a life-changing read that touches souls of all ages.
“This is going to be huge and it deserves to be” The Guardian
“An original high-school drama that blasts through teenage love of conformity.” The Sunday Times
