Stargirl
Stargirl - Jerry Spinelli

This book teaches students that it is okay to be yourself and you don't have to try and fit in. This book would be great for a 4th grade class. I would have the students fill out a graphic organizer as they read the book. They could also pull out vocabulary words from the text.

Love, Stargirl - Jerry Spinelli Great book and sequel to the first. Love the letters, finding the new boy, Dootsie, and all the unique character. Only wanted to see Leo come to PA.

Short Review: Another re-read for me. I adore this book. Stargirl is the best character i know for sure. Pet rat, crazy adventures into the desert, trys to change herself to please others but fails. My heart gets crushed every time i read the parts of her trying so hard to fit in. People should be more accepting of other people thats for sure.

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).
