I wanted to give up on this book halfway through, but I'm glad I finished it. The pay off is pretty good, but it's not as good as Stargirl. I just never found myself that invested in the story.
(There's also a lot of talking about American Indians in the past tense.)
I'm going to read My Name is Mina next. It seems like a natural progression (both books are sequels released well after their first books and written from the girl's point of view).

Following Stargirl's adventures from when she left Mica highschool all of a sudden to her new life in Pennsylvania where she was back to homeschooling. In this sequel, she meets new people, a new bestfriend and a potential new boyfriend.
This book was dubbed as the world's longest letter where we see a brand new story now in the eyes of Stargirl, whereas in the prequel, we heard Leo Borlock's POV.
Stargirl writes letters to Leo everyday in which she's still debating whether to send it or not but still she continues to write everyday and it served as her journal for her journey. She was devastated to the point of losing pebbles in her wagon everyday. She contemplates on a lot of things as she misses Leo everyday.
