Don't Judge a Book by its Cover


One of the main characters in this book is a girl named Stargirl. Stargirl was different from all of the other kids because of her personality. She also did not care what other thought of her. Sometimes she would leave a presant on someones door step and not say who it was from. Stargirl taught me thats it is ok to be differant from everybody else. Another main character in this book is Archie. Archie was a man that some  of the kids whent to when they had any type of wierd question. Archie also collected animal bones. On Saturdays the kids would go to his house because he had a club called the Stone Bone Club.

Kids Pick

My favorite part of the book was when Stargirl when to the Ocotilo Ball. This was my favorite part becuase most of the kids started to like her again and they all joined in on the Bunny Hop. Also because Stargirl stood on her own and whent to the ball even though she was not asked by anyone.
