This is the 7th book I read for my 2019 Reading Challenge. I have actually read this a decade ago while I was pregnant with my little man. One of my preggy friends recommended the book and lent me her copy. I remember loving the book back then. Must be why I cannot pass up on the chance to have my own copy when I saw that my favorite Facebook book shop is selling it.

The best time to catch up on my reading is when my little man was too busy enjoying himself in the water. I was able to finish it in a day, while watching my little swimmer from the pool side. :smile:

Here is a brief synopsis from Goodreads:

Stargirl. She’s as magical as the desert sky. As strange as her pet rat. As mysterious as her own name. And she captures Leo Borlock’s heart with just one smile.

But when the students of Mica High turn on Stargirl for everything that makes her different, Leo urges her to become the very that can destroy her: normal. In a celebration of nonconformity, Newberry Medalist Jerry Spinelli weaves a tense, emotional tale about the perils of popularity—and the inspiration of first love.


I am just a book away from keeping up with my 30-book challenge and I am hoping I could catch up on my reading during this holy week break. I also hope my new Anne of Green Gables books will arrive by then.

Do you also like this book? Do you have any recommendations on which book I should read next?
