In today's world we are faced with many different issues, choices, and obstacles that we will endure no matter what the age may be. When it comes to choices, we need to be true to what we believe and what we have learned. We are all different, and we need to be able to express who we are without judgement. That is what I took away from this inspiring story by Jerry Spinelli. We need to make others happy and do good deeds without the glory and praise of it.
Stargirl is a new student at Mica High School, but this is a name she has given for herself, not her real name. Leo, a new friend, is intrigued by her and doesn't understand her style or why she does certain things. She was always going about being happy and making others happy.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good life lesson story. I really enjoyed this book.
