My wife teaches at a Wesley Chapel, Florida, middle school, and one of her friends teaches reading. Her friend was kind enough to recommend Jerry Spinelli‘s Stargirl to me when I needed something to read with a middle school student who I am tutoring in grammar and reading.
It’s a wonderful book for a 7th or 8th grader to read.
I just finished reading the sequel, Love Stargirl, which is also very good. I didn’t like it quite as well as Stargirl, but I certainly would recommend it to parents looking for a good Young Adult novel.
