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. Then Stargirl meets her wonderfully bizarre new neighbors: Dootsie, the curly-headed five-year-old human bean; Betty Lou, who hasn't stepped outside her house for nine years; Charlie, who sits among the tombstones; hot-tempered Alvina, with that one glittery nail; and Perry Delloplane, the blue-eyed thief who soon lays his own claim to Stargirl's heart.

In letters to Leo over the course of a year, Stargirl comes to find hope in new places: mockingbirds, donut angels, moon flowers, and the Winter Solstice. But what's life without Leo? Will he, can he, answer that one crucial question she asks every morning to the rising sun?

    " Stargirl was such a fun read, that I was excited when I found out that there is a sequel! After getting about half-way through Love, Stargirl, I was becoming disappointed with the layout and the pining for Leo, etc. So, I read the last page or two just to see if I wanted to finish the book. Yes, that's rather sneaky and perhaps kind of silly, but I confess, that's what I decided to do. Anyway, reading the last part helped me to decide that I would indeed finish and I was not disappointed. I still prefer the first book to this one, but this one definitely has earned its place in my repertoire of books read. "

    " I hated the book it was so confuseing the book was about a girl named star girl writing letters to her long lost ex boyfreind she has moved and misses him tremndiously. I dont understand why she writes so much when she never is going to give the letters to him! Except for writing she should be out exploring the world so she could find someone new! "

    " The sequel to Stargirl, this is a "long letter" in journal entry format from Stargirl to Leo, telling him about what she's been up to since she moved. I like both books for their lessons about love, acceptance, and appreciating the little things in life. Stargirl's outlook on life is something to be cherished. "
