Publisher's Summary

She's as magical as the desert sky. As strange as her pet rat. As mysterious as her own name.

From the day she arrives at quiet Mica High in a burst of color and sound, the hallways hum with the murmur of "Stargirl, Stargirl." She captures Leo Borlock's heart with just one smile. She sparks a school-spirit revolution with just one cheer. The students of Mica High are enchanted.

At first.

Then they turn on her. Stargirl is suddenly shunned for everything that makes her different. And Leo, panicked and desperate with love, urges her to become the very thing that can destroy her: normal.

In this celebration of nonconformity, Newbery Medalist Jerry Spinelli weaves a tense, emotional tale about the perils of popularity and the thrill and inspiration of first love.

What the Critics Say

"Ritter's reading pulsates with all the guarded passion and quiet graces of a young man in love for the first time...Spinelli once again reminds us how difficult but wonderful it is to be human." (AudioFile)
"A unique love story and humorous tragedy." (Parents' Choice)
"Ritter fully captures the emotional current of Spinelli's text. He relates the humorous details, clique-related dramas and intense heartbreak of high school life with a knowing tone that young listeners will likely embrace." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Awesome - My First Audio Book"

    I downloaded this book for my 10 yr old kid. I personally don't like to read books, except for technical books, so I thought that I thought I would listen to the story while I'm doing work and be able to talt to my kid about it. I have to admit I really enjoyed star girl and my son will find it easy to relate to her since he too like to do things his own way, though not to the extent of the character. I personally would recommend this to kids ages from 9 to 13. I'll have my son post an update as soon as he listens to it. Great story for kids

    "So wonderful..."

    Little did I know that we would lose such a great actor in John Ritter at such an early age, but we also lost him as a wonderful narrator. Who knew he was so endearing and charming with his voice. It really captured my attention and I loved this story. Definitely worth your time.

    Story
    "Let it Shine, Let it Shine, Let it Shine!"

    A lovely and often humorus story of a teenage girl attending public school after years of being homeschooled. This girl has her own unique way of thinking, dressing and participating in high school life. Star Girl is comfortable with being herself even though she is different from the other kids. Star Girl is like a star beam shining new light
    & life into the local high school.

    Story
    "awesome book"
    Where does Star Girl rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    3 because it is just so long.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    by putting elustrations and shorting the story a little bit but keep the suspense.


    What does John Ritter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    he makes a really good experience and its much comfortable than reading by listening.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    i dont know what that means


    Any additional comments?

    awesome book never read anything like that.

    "Every Time"

    The story of Star Girl will always make me smile. She reminds me of a childhood friend that to this day I wonder where she is and who she became. I think everyone should have a Star Girl in their life. Those who don't, truly will never understand what it's like to imagine.

    Story
    "Star Girl Audible"

    I loved this story. It was fantastic!!
    I did not love the person who read it. He didn't pronounce things correctly, such as the names of the cactus and when speaking for people or Spanish, did a terrible job of it...
    At times it made the story very distracting and difficult to listen to. :/

    Story
    "Stargirl"

    Stargirl was such an amazing book I would've done more for shadowing I figured out the whole neck tie part right from the start but over all I really did enjoy the book I wish Leo had been different and didn't care what purple thought and just stayed and loved Stargirl or asked her to the ball

    Story
    "According to Amazon - Not for Kids!"
    What would have made Star Girl better?

    Being able to hear it on a Free Time account for kids, I guess all kids audio books are to adult?


    What could Jerry Spinelli have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Jerry wasted time creating an Audible version of a children's book that Amazon blocks on it's device (Fire Kids Edition) created for children.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Not sure, was not allowed to hear it.
