Realistic (fiction), Trade Book, Lexile 590
Leo narrates a striking moment from his high school experience: a time when he met and grew to love Stargirl. Stargirl stands out as the new student at his high school in the small town of Mica, Arizona. She is a nonconformist who dresses, thinks, and acts her own way and is kind to everyone. Other students are at first confused and then enchanted by her sweet, quirky ways. However, when she cheers for the hated rival team, everyone is quick to shun her. Now Leo has to decide, does he stick by Stargirl or follow the crowd?
