I definitely expected a lot more from this one. There's a lot of hype surrounding it, so I was hoping for something amazing. It wasn't wonderful, though. It was pretty decent, and an enjoyable read. It was rather slow at the start, setting up Stargirl as someone with no feelings which in turn made sure I didn't care about her character. It got better as it went on, but the narrator annoyed me because he was so shallow. It was very thought-provoking though. Explores the idea of 'fitting in' and whether one should change oneself in order to please other people. It was good, but the beginning and ending were both pretty flimsy.

This book is so magical, it really is. I don't think I'll ever come across a character like Stargirl again. What really brings the intrigue is that Leo narrates, meaning we never really get in her head, she becomes as much of a mystery to the reader as she does to all those who encounter her. Unique doesn't really cover it with her. I loved how considerate she was, I for one would love it if someone sang happy birthday to me, since it <i>never</i> happens.<br/><br/>Its really lovely, anyone of any age can appreciate it, and I really hope more do.
