She's as magical as the desert sky. As strange as her pet rat. As mysterious as her own name.

From the day she arrives at quiet Mica High in a burst of color and sound, the hallways hum with the murmur of Stargirl, Stargirl. She captures Leo Borlock's heart with just one smile. She sparks a school-spirit revolution with just one cheer. The students of Mica High are enchanted.

At first.

Then they turn on her. Stargirl is suddenly shunned for everything that makes her different. And Leo, panicked and desperate with love, urges her to become the very thing that can destroy her: normal.

In this celebration of nonconformity, Newbery Medalist Jerry Spinelli weaves a tense, emotional tale about the perils of popularity and the thrill and inspiration of first love.

    " The story was just plain sweet. Everyone who will read this book will have a huge smile on their face. The author is amazing. He makes even the sad parts into a beautiful thing. This book was phenomenal and whoever will read it, will think so too. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hillary Arbore | 1/1/2014

    " For me this was the best book I read as a teen. It helped me wrap my mind around other lives and what the world brought to the table. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angie Lee | 12/10/2013

    " It wasn't the type of book that I enjoy much, but it was pretty good. The book made me wonder about certain things that happened in the book, so it wasn't boring. It just felt drowsy and slow. Too quiet. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle Kelley | 11/25/2013

    " When Stargirl arrives at Mica high, the students aren't sure what to make of her prairie dresses, ukelele, singing, and upbeat spirit. The reader watches while Mica high evolves around - and because - of her into something at times complacent, at times ugly, and at times occassionally beautiful. It's a tale that must be witnessed - the all too common truth about how society reacts to individuals who don't fit the mold. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brett-Morgan Nielsen | 11/21/2013

    " I love Stargirl. I could read it one million times in a row and love it just as much every time. The kind of book that gives you a better outlook on life after you read it. I recommend it to everybody. (Also, sidenote, it's not as girly as it sounds. Don't judge it by the title. Boys can enjoy this book just as much as girls. And the narrator of the book is a boy.) "

    " I loved how Spinelli managed to keep the story in between mystery and too-teenage-ish! Just enough to keep someone like me reading. The metaphors & all that figurative things made it more interesting. 5 stars to Stargirl. :) "
