Book Review: Stargirl - Jerry Spinelli
From the day she arrives at quiet Mica High in a burst of color and sound, hallways hum "Stargirl." She captures Leo Borlock's heart with one smile. She sparks a school-spirit revolution with one cheer. The students of Mica High are enchanted. Until they are not. Leo urges her to become the very thing that can destroy her - normal.
4/5 stars (really liked it)
I didn't think I would like this book as much as I did. The book is written in the point of view of Leo, which I did not like at first because I really wanted to know what was going through Stargirl's mind. But in the end I was glad that the book was in his point of view. Stargirl is the most caring but not normal girl and was very hard for people to accept her. I really think that we need more people like her in the world. She was a very brave person to not conform to "normal" and to be herself and care about everyone. I am planning to read the next book about her.
