Introduction

Title: Stargirl Author: Jerry Spinelli Publisher: Listening Library Summary: This story is on Leo Borlock's junior year at Mica Area High School in Mica, Arizona, and his relationship with a girl named Stargirl. The students turn on her due to her cheering on opposing basketball teams and come to despise her antics. She spends more and more time with Leo. Finally, Stargirl shows her at the Ocotillo ball, bunny hopping with her classmates and leaving after ungrudgingly forgiving her most vicious detractor. She moves away before the next school year, but, years later, Leo receives a necktie similar to the one that she made for him in high school. ...read more.

Middle

The school takes out their anger for the defeat on Stargirl, illogically blaming her for the team's loss. This eventually leads to her being shunned by the entire student body except Leo and her one remaining friend, Dori Dilson. The character I like most: Susan "Stargirl" Caraway She is a new face to Mica Area High School. Stargirl is different from everyone else at MAHS. She develops a love interest in the main character, Leo Borlock. She brings the idea of individuality to MAHS, something that the school has never encountered before, and the student body is not always sure how to grasp it. ...read more.

Conclusion

This book is an easy read I would recommend for a teenager to do for a book report. Though some parts of the story bored me, but it was an excellent book I ever read. I've never read something that really touched my heart as much as Stargirl. It shows that being true to ones self is a gift that few have, but it is what we all love and try to hide. I didn't really write about it because this book doesn't have a word to describe. This book is good for reading in summer. Once again I highly recommended this book to everybody and I want to read this book again. When I finished this book, I cried. ...read more.
