Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli is told from the perspective of Leo Borlock, a shy high school student. At Mica High, there was an unspoken rule where everyone stays inside the lines and does not stand out no matter what. And so that’s what he did. Until a new kid came in, shaking his world upside down.

This book emphasizes the act of being true to you, no matter what. The book was a gift from a friend, and I ended up loving the ending, especially because I did not see it coming. I would definitely recommend this read to others, however there were some parts in the book where it felt like it was dragging on and on.

Overall, I would rate it a 8/10.
