The Stargirl Series
by Jerry Spinelli (Author)
Told from the perspective of Leo Borlock, an eleventh-grade student at Mica Area High School in Arizona, the Stargirl duology features his budding relationship with eccentric new classmate Susan Caraway, known as 'Stargirl.' But while Leo wonders at Stargirl's compassionate nature and unconventional worldview, she is scorned and ostracised by most other students.
Individuality, diversity, and acceptance feature heavily in Spinelli's now-classic Stargirl series. These life-changing novels celebrate being true to oneself and the thrill of first love. Perfect for fans of John Green and David Levithan.
