Review of 'StarGirl' by Jerry Spinelli!

I read it in 4 days. It’s amazing. This book was recommended to me by Carrie Hope Fletcher.

Publisher – Orchard Books

The blurb reads:

 Stargirl. She’s as magical as the desert sky. As mysterious as her own name.

 Nobody knows who she is, or where she’s come from. But everyone loves her for being different. And she captures Leo’s heart with one smile.

But standing out from the crowd isn’t always admired. And when people start to turn against them, Stargirl and Leo are forced to test the strength of their love.

 elebrating non-conformity and the thrill of first love, Stargirl is a classic of our time.’

It really is a fantastic read. And it has short chapters, which are a bonus. Immediately when you open this book you are engulfed in mystery. It is a beautifully told story about being different. Because the chapters are so short it is enticing to read it in shorter time as possible. The resolution is powerful and the legacy left is just awesome. It takes you on the journey of a teenage misfit and the pressures that has on relationships in general.

The story is from a male POV (Leo’s) and I don't like it as much as a girl’s POV, because I can’t really relate to a male POV. It’s interesting to find that he was the one with the popularity issues, opposed to her.  It's a story of the frailty of a first love evolving. It is definitely worth the read.
