Mention Monday: Stargirl


From the day she arrives at quiet Mica High in a burst of color and sound, hallways hum “Stargirl.” She captures Leo Borlock’s heart with one smile. She sparks a school-spirit revolution with one cheer. The students of Mica High are enchanted. Until they are not. Leo urges her to become the very thing that can destroy her – normal.-Goodreads summary

I have always been a fan of Jerry Spinelli, but this book has to be my favorite!  Many YA books encourage individuality, but none of them are quite as effective in their message like Stargirl.  The actual character of Stargirl is charming and encourages her peers to break the conformity and just be themselves.

Therefore, I think this book’s overall message is perfect for anyone.  Whether you’re carrying your pet rat and playing your ukulele, like crazy Stargirl or reading upstairs in your room, like me, just be yourself.  Stargirl proves that there can be only one you!  Live your life!

This book is a super quick read and perfect for summer.  This is the first book in the Stargirl duology.  I look forward to reading the second one!
