Synopsis

LOVE, STARGIRL picks up a year after Stargirl ends and reveals the new life of the beloved character who moved away so suddenly at the end of Stargirl. The novel takes the form of "the world's longest letter," in diary form, going from date to date through a little more than a year's time. In her writing, Stargirl mixes memories of her bittersweet time in Mica, Arizona, with involvements with new people in her life.

In Love, Stargirl, we hear the voice of Stargirl herself as she reflects on time, life, Leo, and - of course - love.


From the Hardcover edition.

The Bookbag

Far from painting a negative picture of homeschooled children (freaks and/or loners, taken out of class for religious or moral reasons), this is a pretty appealing view of what education outside the classroom could look like, and would have made me, reading this at the age Stargirl is in the book...

Stargirl's neighbors and friends will remind you of something out of a Tim Burton movie --- slightly strange, over the top and completely memorable.

The first book was from Leo’s point of view, so I liked that this book was from Stargirl’s point of view.
