I had some doubts about this book going into it. I mean, I didn't really like the sound of a book called 'Stargirl'. Man, was I wrong. Stargirl can be related to by anyone who has ever felt weird, or like they are being shunned by the entire world. (Oh, just saying, this book is probably appropriate for 9+, but I think you have to be middle-school age and up to really appreciate it.) Stargirl is a wonderful person, and the end made me get teary. Very good book.
This is a REALLY good book. Leo may not be the best role model, but I really think that Stargirl is because she acts like... herself, no matter what other people think of her. There are some mean characters, but Stargirl always does what she thinks is right. There is a kiss, and some hand holding and general displays of affection. Overall, a very good book for mature people to read, but not really little kids.
i think it was a good book but there is maybe a little kids who r bad role models. but children should be smart enough not t follow after them, but after the good characters of this very intresting book. and i disagree with good for ages 12 and up anyone youger would not underdtand because im eleven and understood it perfectly.
It is a well-written book, but not very interesting.
I really didn't enjoy this book, it constantly lost my attention. I believe it has a good message, but it is simply one of those books where you keep reading to see if anything interesting happens, but nothing ever does.
'Stargirl' is wonderful because it shows how being different in society can both change others and turn others against you. The character of Stargirl is wonderfully unusual and inspires kids and teens to be themselves.
It is the sweetest book in the whole world, my favorite book. Some people say it has a boring plot or it is a girly book, but that isn't true. Sure, to some it IS going to be boring. I loved Little Women and my teacher found it boring. It just depends on your personality. Don't dismiss it as a "girly" book. That is why my friend said and I nearly threw my backpack at him. Yes, there is romance, but that doesn't make it a girls-only book! He has never read it and doesn't know what it's about. I think it might be the title, "StarGIRL" that turns many boys away. She can't well name herself "Starboy," can she? It is narrated by a boy, and it does not circulate around their romance; it is about being yourself, being kind, and finding out who you are in a place where being different is not well received. And can you believe all this was written by a twelve year old? :)
I loved this book! It was the best book I think I have ever read! I was very disappointed with the end, until I found out that there is a second book to this. I threw the book across the room at the end! But it was only because I was ten and was very disappointed with the end. This is more for smaller kids but teaches a lesson everyone should learn! I loved how some of the characters stood up for themselves.
This is one of my favorite books of all time! Stargirl is a great role model who is true to herself no matter what others say. She encourages kids to be themselves and do what you love, even when you are disrespected for it. Leo is just a typical teenager. He is a bit shallow and at one point, asks stargirl to change, not respecting her for who she is. He learns a lesson in the end, so he's an okay role model. Some iffy language used but nothing too serious. It is a lovely book that should be read by all middle graders to teach them not to get lost in the crowd of popularity.
MY FAVORITE BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
THIS IS MY FAVORITE BOOK!! Its amazing, and really well written. It is sooooo good. And the main character is a GREAT role model. A great message from this book is to be yourself. Totally appropriate too. LOVED IT!!!!!!
At first, when I got this book, I didn't have any interest whatsoever in reading it. But when I started, I just couldn't put it down. The story evolves around a and a girl named Stargirl, who is new to the school. She is nothing alike others. I'll remember this book for a long time.
