Two and a half stars. I was given this book as a gift when it first came out. Odd myself but with a much darker vibe than Stargirl, I read it twice in one sitting. I had discovered girls suddenly and recently, and was glued to Leo's thoughts and experiences. I yearned for a girlfriend so dedicated, and to be confident like him someday. I was in sixth or seventh grade then. Nearly two decades later, I have not have either of those things and am okay with that. I read this out of a desire to reread Spinelli. I couldn't believe the same guy who wrote the heart-wrenching Maniac Magee could write something as relatively lighthearted as this, and was fascinated, at age twelve. Now, I understand and appreciate those wide ranges. (EDIT DREAMWIDTH 9/10/19: Ha ha ha, please read my Maniac Magee review following because ha ha ha). Sadly, now I don't really like this book. Middle school me would be furious with current me.

The story is that of first love. Wonderful! I've written my share, often as fic or a character exercise for a play I'm writing. But the girl he loves is so unrealistic and her experiences so bizarre that I cannot help thinking that he lived in a richly developed fantasy world at best, due to aching loneliness. At worst...these two kids kinda read like they're in a mental ward for teens who aren't quite stable on medication. I feel bad for thinking that. She wins a state speech competition talking about whatever pops into her head? She bounds around eagerly cheering everyone and everything? After establishing she's perfectly comfortable in her unique-ness, she goes out for the one group high school girls are told will make them fit in forever? Who's letting her carry her pet rat on her shoulder to school? Why? She frequently asks off-topic questions in class and seems to have disjointed speech patterns. Realistically, she'd be ostracized from the very start. Leo has a really idealized view of her, and engages in low-level stalking, which she thinks is cute. Ew.

Thousands of people turn up to a small town game to see this new cheerleader, and I'm convinced Leo's deep in fantasy. It's so unrealistic. I went to a public high school in the suburbs that had seven hundred kids. The dynamics just aren't there in this book, and it felt so off. How does a small town get money for a high school tv show? Was it public access or something? This book--I just--what? Why? How? ( )

Spinelli wrote this before Nathan Rabin coined "manic pixie dream girl," but that doesn't excuse how repulsive this whole mindfuck is. Ugh. I'm too old (and cynical) for this book. ( )

Read it in one day! I know, it is a kids book, but still! One day!

I enjoyed Stargirl, the book and character, very much.

I can see her maybe more as a jr. high student, than a high school student.

Great stuff ( )

I like the message about non-conformity, and the general success that Stargirl has with it. It's almost a philosophical treatise on the subject, and is a useful thought experiment, especially when you are in the middle of negotiating conformity and cruelty. That said, I'm not convinced that it holds up particularly well as an older title in the current world. The message about kindness and focusing on others is more relevant than ever. The methods Stargirl uses to basically stalk and spy on everyone around her are a more complex conversation. Didn't really love the audiobook narrator. ( )

very few books in young adult sections are worth reading, this being one of them. In a world of Harry Potter, we should really be looking at stars. ( )

I honestly recommend this novel to young girls or mostly anyone that is struggling with embracing themselves and having fear being different from others. Stargirl is the new girl in Mica High School, and she is quite different from the other students. She stands out a lot in the crowd because they think she weird for a variety of reasons. Fitting in a new school environment is very difficult because we all want people to like us. But people don't see the unique person we are they just judge us constantly. After, months she decides to pretend as hard to be just like the others. Also, Leo wants her to be like the other girls because he is concerned about popularity and who talks to him. She feels peer pressure and changes her style and the way she acts. She was hoping that people will notice the change and it will have a huge impact in her popularity but that was not the case. Overall, the novel “Stargirl” is inspirational and has themes that teens are enduring. My favorite parts are when Sartgirl doesn't let people get to her by saying mean stuff just because she is different. And she is not embarrassed or even cares that she is different.
