STARGIRL BY JERRY SPINELLI

LANGUAGE

None.

SEXUAL SITUATIONS

Leo and Stargirl kiss briefly.

VIOLENCE

Hillari, a popular girl at Mica High, slaps Stargirl.

RELIGION

Stargirl meditates often and lets Leo join her.

MORALS

This book teaches kids to be who they are and do what they love even if it doesn’t fit the “normal”.

ATTENTIVENESS

To be honest, the book was a bit slow. I had to make myself read a little a day in order to finish. Once I got to the last chapter, I began to read fast.

MY THOUGHTS

I liked this book and I think it teaches a very valuable lesson to teens. I recently saw the movie adaption and sadly it did not meet my expectations. It didn’t stand by the majority of the book and was a bit odd. One motto I live by is, read the book first.
