Stargirl..again.

Reader reviewed by Kiran

Stargirl is back in Love, Stargirl. Stargirl's eccentricity was a treat to read about again.


However, I feel like this follow-up book was not as good as the first. While good, it just wasn't as good. Still a good read for Stargirl fans, though.

Tearjerker City!

Reader reviewed by Tori Phillips

In this sequel to bestseller Stargirl, Stargirl writes to Leo about her unusual behavior in high school and her feelings about him, from acting goofy at sports games to singing 'Happy Birthday' in front of the entire lunchroom. I thought that the ending will break your heart because you never know if Stargirl and Leo will ever be reunited but you know that they wish that they will see each other again. REad this book to discover what it feels like to be an angel who changes other people's lives forever.

A wonderful sequel to "Stargirl"

Reader reviewed by NIc

Stargirl Carraway has moved away from Mica, moved away from Leo.. but her heart is still with him. Here in this new town, she writes Leo the world's longest letter. It reads like a diary, and we finally see the world through the eyes of Stargirl.


Stargirl's new home is a town of misfits and oddballs, many of whom are held apart from each other by fear, rumour, conflict, or loneliness. Her new friends include an exuberant 5-year-old, an agoraphobic, a thief, and an 11-year-old girl who likes to beat up boys. As Stargirl learns about her new neighbors, she learns more about herself; as she helps the town's residents come together as a community, she learns to become a whole Stargirl once again.


Even better than it's prequel, "Love, Stargirl" might just teach you a bit about yourself, too.

what a great follow up to Stargirl.

Stargirl tells you a story about her life after moving to her new town. here she meets very interesting people. A woman who is afraid to leave her home, a little girl who she instantly befriends, a boy who she might have feelings for, and a young girl who is a trouble maker.

Stargirl discovers new things about herself everyday.

a unique read

Stargirl Tells Her Own Story...Wonderfully

Reader reviewed by Stephanie

Several years ago Jerry Spinelli introduced to the international stage the extraordinary Stargirl Caraway, who took our breaths away with her uniqueness and utterly fascinating character. Now Stargirl is back, and this time shes telling her own storyin the worlds longest letter to her ex-boyfriend, Leo.

In her new town in a whole other state, Stargirl meets a variety of interesting characters. Theres Dootsie, her best friend, whos six years old and like a mini-Stargirl. Betty Lou, their neighbor, hasnt been out of her house for nine years. Eleven-year-old Alvina works at Margies Donut Shop, beats up boys, and is a self-proclaimed rotten kid. Charlie sits by his wife Graces grave every day. And Perry Delloplane is an arrogant thief and has a harem, but Stargirl just cant stop thinking about him.

In addition to the eccentric people, Stargirl of course finds her enchanted places and does her selfless deeds. But is she ever really happy? For Leo Borlockthe boy who broke her heart, who chose to be accepted by society over being with heris always on her mind, and Stargirl doesnt know what to do about him&if there is anything that can be done.

LOVE, STARGIRL does not disappoint dedicated Stargirl fans, which I am extremely grateful for. In this book, you get to know Stargirl inside and out: her fears, her weaknesses, her insecurity, what makes her happy. Stargirl ceases to be an impossibly invulnerable character, and her three dimensions gain more clarity, but she never stops being a delight.

Wow!

Reader reviewed by Corn

Spinelli's well-woven cast of characters (which were assigned particularly interesting names and a fair share of quirks) lit up the book, even in it's most maddening moments.
Stargirl Caraway will always be the same kindhearted freespirit, with her happy wagon and penny-pitching tendencies, but I sensed a "weakness". That weakness happened Stargirl's crazy friend, named Perry Dellopane, and happened to be the most maddening literary character I'd ever come across. Reminding me much of Gilmore Girls' Jess Mariano, Perry was character I hated to hate.
Though I read Stargirl years prior to reading it's ever-fascinating sequel, "Love, Stargirl", it's still safe to say that a sequel can never outdo it's original.
However, Spinelli's "Love, Stargirl" was a book I loved to love.
