Synopses & Reviews
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.
Originally published in 2000, Stargirl was instantly embraced and has sold nearly two million copies. With its depiction of a nonconformist with a heart of gold, its lyrical writing from Newbery Medalist Jerry Spinelli, and its charming love story, Stargirl quickly asserted itself as a modern classic. Love, Stargirl, the companion novel written from Stargirl's perspective, was a similarly smashing success in 2007, with over 400,000 hardcover copies sold.
Now, both bestselling paperbacks are collected in a handsome new boxed set, the ideal gift for any teen reader, as well as any of the many Stargirl fans looking for a new keepsake edition of this beloved pair of novels.
