Stargirl has moved and left everything behind: Arizona, Mica High, enchanted desert places, and Leo. He's all she can think about, and her life begins to feel like a parade of unhappy anniversaries.

Will he, can he, answer that one crucial question she asks every morning to the rising sun? Download and start listening now!
