  • Leo (ex boyfriend)
  • Perry (friend/possible future boyfriend)

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 no longer interested in what she has to share with the school. Leo urges her to become the very thing that can destroy her - normal. This book is very enlightening and has a positive message for young adults as well as children. Join Stargirl on her journey to finding herself or adding on to her personality, and Leo on the road to accepting her.

Stargirl has moved and left everything behind: Arizona, Mica High, enchanted desert places--and Leo.

He's all she can think about, and her life begins to feel like a parade of unhappy anniversaries. Then Stargirl meets her wonderfully bizarre new neighbor: Dootsie, the curly-headed five-year-old "human bean"; Betty Lou, who hasn't stepped outside her house for nine years; Charlie, who sits among the tombstones; hot-tempered Alvina with that one glittery nail; and Perry Delloplane, the blue-eyed thief who soon lays his own claim to Stargirl's heart.

In letters to Leo over the course of a year, Stargirl comes to find hope in new places: mockingbirds, don't angels, moonflowers, and the Winter Soltice--that turning-point day when dark tips to light. But what's life without Leo? Will he--can he--answer that one crucial question she asked every morning to the rising sun?There is also book two, called 'Love, Stargirl'.
