Probably the Best Book in the World

Stargirl is short, sweet, and it makes you look at the world in a whole new way. Everyone should read this book.

Great Voice

Gabi's voice is excellent - I felt like I could actually hear her talking as I read, right down to the accent on the Spanish words she used. This book was fascinating to me because her Mexican-American world is so different from my own WASP upbringing....

Love The Character But Not The Plot

I really do like this book, but I wish I liked the plot more. Without giving away spoilers, I just feel like the romance should have turned out differently. There are basically two major plot threads - the romance thread and the relationship with her mother...

Don't Give Up On It

Not Rainbow Rowell's Best

While it is still a good book, I feel like this book wouldn't appeal to people who haven't read Fangirl. It's supposed to be stand alone, but unless you understand that it is based on fictional fan fiction, it just reads like bad Harry Potter fanfic, as opposed to Rowell's...
