Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli

Reviewed by Holly (Library Staff)

This book took me on a journey back to High School. The main character is a home schooled girl that is attending public school for the first time. The author describes a convergence of two opposing forces, a free spirited youngster and a conventional high school. At first the originality of the girl named Stargirl was refreshing and embraced by many. Then things change. Remembering how important it was to be popular was a common chord in this book. Stargirl also experiences her first love. This book is a quick pleasant read for anyone wanting to escape the adult world and be transported to a simpler time. I read the book because I heard it was being made into a movie. The movie is due to hit theaters in the Spring of 2020. The main character is being played by Grace Vanderwaal, a former winner of America’s Got Talent.
