Stargirl is little strange. That’s what other people think at her school. She wears weird clothes to school. The book Stargirl narrates the first love of Stargirl who is considered as little “strange”. As reading this book, it made me sad that how people judge other people by their personal life style, not respecting them. I think it’s ridiculous to judge someone else with their looks or personalities. Most of the time people don’t even want to know them deeper, because they think they are just “weird”.
This book talks about the Stargirl’s life in school and her first love. I think this book would be great for children who are going through hard stage with their friends at school. It’s very sensitive thing for them to think about friendship in that age, so I think this book can help them to think that they are not alone.
