Jerry Spinelli has done it again - I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED Stargirl and I was so excited to see the sequel, Love, Stargirl coming out - and he hasn't disappointed!! When I read these, I just wish I had the courage to be Stargirl - she is SO not afraid of what others think of her and she is who she is - people may think she's strange sometimes but she is true to herself. I admire her courage, and I love her spunk! This book is a very long letter to her boyfriend, Leo - that she moved away from at the end of Stargirl. I enjoyed the way Spinelli set it up - the letter format is fun and fresh. Yes, it's teen angst at it's best, but I appreciate Stargirl's individuality so that is what makes it a winner for me!
