Stargirl is an amazing book. It's about a girl who comes to an ordinary high school school with very average people. Stargirl seems weird at first, but it's a good kind of weird. It started with her gaining popularity until everyone seemed to be thinking what's Stargirl going to do today? But everything tumbled down after an incident that made everyone mad at her. Now she's trying to become popular again by being... normal.

This book is great because there's never a dull moment. My favorite part is at the end when she solved a slap in the face. I like Stargirl the best out of all the characters, because she reminds me of.. well, me. I think I kind of stand out, like Stargirl. It's an amazing story because of how the author wrote it; he makes you think about what you've read

I would recommend this book to kids ages 10 to adult. This is book one of two. The second book is called Love Stargirl. (And I hope there are more!)
