Stargirl is a heartbreaking tale about a girl who just can’t fit in. She arrived one day in school and nearly everyone loves her from her ukulele to her pet rat, Cinnamon. She captures Leo’s heart with one smile and makes everyone laugh as she does the thing she loves most, keeping people’s chins up.

But after a disaster of a basketball season she is hated by everyone, even her closest friend, but Leo won’t give in. He thinks the only way for her to fit in is to be “normal.”

Stargirl is a brilliant book. Definitely for lovers of heartbreak, drama and a little bit of adventure. This book is great for all ages but can be appreciated more by older children. I would give it 100%, five stars out of five as it is amazing all the way to the end!
