Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli
A super short read — think one or two beachside afternoons – Stargirl chronicles the story of Leo Borlock and Stargirl, who arrives at his high school in a burst of nonconformity and captures Leo’s heart. As she takes him on adventures that include dropping off flowers at random people’s houses and trying to count every bulletin board in town, Leo learns about her, him and people in general. After a series of unfortunate events, however, Leo begins to wonder if Stargirl might not be a better girlfriend if she were more normal. This sweet story about the highs and lows of nonconformity is sure to bring back the thrill of first love.
