Star Girl is very mysterious. She is very dramatic at times. She is a wonderful character who I recommend to all readers.

This is a really good book by Jerry Spinelli. It is just as good as Stargirl so you should look for it at the library.

Review:

This is the best book by far I have ever read. Stargirl is something else. She was today, she was tomorrow, she was anything and everything. She was unexpected yet wanted yet rejected. No one knew what to make of her. She was home schooled until she decided to try high school. She was kind and would be nice to everyone and didn't care what people thought of her. Her real name was Susan but she believes that a name is like a shirt and when it's worn out you get a new one. She named herself Pocket Mouse, Mudpie, Hullygully, then Stargirl. She lives to serve and wanted nothing from no one yet gave everything she had. Though, she was rejected. She was a gift and people didn't even think she was real. People would make fun of her but she showed that she didn't care and continued being herself, nothing could stop her. Then the world went silent for her, and no one looked at her or talked to her. They tried to pin her down and understand her but the pin went through, and like a butterfly she flew, and gave and listened to everything, the world the birds, everything. She was tall had long soft, sandy, and golden flowing hair. She wore no makeup and didn't try and fit in or act like anyone, she was totally and completely herself.

I like the book because it teaches you a lesson. It teaches you being popular is not always good.
