Love, Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli

Stargirl is trying to be liked but she is different. She is trying to find love, but it isn’t working out too well. She’s just trying to be herself!

When she’s forced to move to Pennsylvania due to her father’s occupation, Stargirl eventually meets new friends and new people, but she is mainly looking for love.

This dramatic book is formatted as one big letter. The letter is written to Stargirl’s ex-boyfriend, Leo. She can’t decide if she still loves him or if she really is in love with Perry, her new troublesome crush. Will she choose her new crush in Pennsylvania or her past boyfriend in Arizona?

Well, you need to find out for yourself.

Love, Stargirl is the sequel to the book Stargirl; if you haven’t read the first book, I suggest you do. Both books will definitely put you on the edge of your seat. They both involve surreal humor and are extremely exhilarating. Pick up the book, and get ready to read it because you are in for one big romantic ride!
