Read in September, 2007

One of my favorite characters from all of YA literature returns! Told from the point of view of Stargirl herself this time, the novel takes the form of a very long letter to her ex-boyfriend, Leo. Not quite as amazing as the orignal, Love, Stargirl takes a little while to get going. Spinelli seems to struggle with finding an authentic voice for his quirky but lovable character. Once he does, however, Stargirl shines as bright as ever. Reading this one, like reading the original, makes you long to know and be more like the ukulele-playing, rat-loving, solstice-celebrating Stargirl.
