I actually liked this book! For my persuasive essay, the topic was "The most important character is..." I chose Stargirl Caraway. I also read, "Love, Stargirl" the second book. I liked that a lot. It took place when she disappeared at the end of "Stargirl" it's in her point of view. I think this book is great because it reminds me of what most kids today need–individuality.

I really liked this book and you should make at least two more books for this! The best parts are when Leo came to Stargirls house and he hid, and Cinnamon started cleaning out his ear. Also when Stargirl actually kissed him. Lastly, when Stargirl went to the ball and she did the bunny hop with most of the whole school. You need to make another book not just Love Stargirl, but another one after that because you can't leave it with Stargirl hoping to meet Leo just because of destiny. I can't be left without knowing what happens to Leo and Stargirl! This book was really good! :)

I have just used this book as a read aloud for my ninth grade "Effective Reading Skills" class. The students loved and hated it (just like Leo loved and hated Stargirl). At times I believe it hit pretty close to home and caused students to really react. The book lent itself to reader response entries such as "How important is it to be popular?", "Should a person change to fit in?" "What does it mean to be a friend?", etc.
Thanks, Jerry Spinelli, for another wonderful book! Last year my seventh graders had quite a "slump-shuffling" contest to honor Maniac Magee!
