Books to make time for: Part 3
Part 3 of my "Books to make time for" feature is here!
The third book I'd like to feature is: Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli. It's a book I have always remembered since reading it when I was younger.
What is it about?
Here's the blurb. I dont really want to tell you any more as it would ruin it!
She’s as magical as the desert sky. As mysterious as her own name. Nobody knows who she is or where she’s from. But everyone loves her for being different. And she captures Leo’s heart with just one smile. STARGIRL is a classic of our time that celebrates being true to ourselves and the thrill of first love. A life-changing read that touches souls of all ages.
And it really does, y'know... touch the soul and all that. STARgirl is just a lovely, lovely book. And totally an off-beat choice for me considering all that pink gushiness! That just goes to prove how good it is!
Why should you make time for it?
Apart from being a great story (and a wonderfully designed cover!) STARgirl is well written, funny, sad, suspenseful, mysterious and lush. More of a girl's book this one, but I feel ok about marginalising to get it out there! STARgirl is a book that will make you want to be a better person. Guaranteed. (and at once disclaimed. I make no promises but you have a bit of a cold heart if you don't feel like being just a little better for reading it!)
