Certainly a blast for preteens who need the 'Different is good' shpeil that parents and teachers shove down their throats affirmed.
I wouldn't aim for an audience higher than 12 though.
But maybe I'm overestimating 'the youth of today.'

I think this book is a very good book. It teaches you that you dont have to be like everyone else to fit in. Star Girl is a very unique person. She stands out which in my opinion is a good thing. Read This Book!!

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.
