Review by Samantha Lee
Stargirl is a realistic fiction book by Jerry Spinelli. Stargirl is so unique that nobody understands her. When she first attends Mica Area High School in Arizona everyone is enchanted and intrigued by her including Leo Borlock. Everything about her sends whispers through the school, from her pet rat to her ukelele. Soon, their enchantment turns to resent, and the kids of Mica High shun her and her rat for everything that makes her different. Leo, scared to lose her tries to make her conform to high school normalness, not knowing that this is what could destroy her.
I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys realistic fiction. It is a easy but fun to read and is overall just a really great book.
