This is a wonderful, groovy, radical book! I have read it countless times! It was first introduced to me in the 5th grade when my teacher read it to me. I have enjoyed reading it ever since!

JERRY SPINELLI is the author of many books for young readers, including Milkweed; Crash; Wringer; Hokey Pokey; Maniac Magee, winner of the Newbery Medal; and Knots in My Yo-Yo String, his autobiography; as well as Today I Will, written with his wife, poet and author Eileen Spinelli.

Stargirl. From the day she arrives at quiet Mica High in a burst of color and sound, the hallways hum with the murmur of “Stargirl, Stargirl.” She captures Leo Borlocks heart with just one smile. She sparks a school-spirit revolution with just one cheer. The students of Mica High are enchanted. At first.
Then they turn on her. Stargirl is suddenly shunned for everything that makes her different, and Leo, panicked and desperate with love, urges her to become the very thing that can destroy her: normal. In this celebration of nonconformity, Newbery Medalist Jerry Spinelli weaves a tense, emotional tale about the perils of popularity and the thrill and inspiration of first love.
