"She was elusive. She was today. She was tomorrow. She was a faintests scent of a cactus flower, the flitting shadow of an elf owl. We did not know what to make of her in or minds she tried to pin her to a cork board like a butterfly but the pin mearly went through away she flew." Pg. 15
"Something was strapped across her back, but it wasn't a book bag. At first I thought it was a mini guitar. I found out later it was a ukulele. She did not carry a lunch tray. She did not carry a lunch tray. She did carry a large canvas bag with a life-size sunflower painted on it." (4)
"One day a girl screamed in the hallway. She had seen a tiny brown face pop up from her sunflower canvas bag. It was her pet rat." (11)
"She did tell me how she knew what was going on in peoples lives. It was simple, she said. she read the daily paper" (112)

1. If you are going to try to be liked don't try to become liked by being the same as everyone else, try to be liked by being yourself even if that means being different, because people will like you for who you are instead of who you pretend to be. For example don't do what Stargirl did when she became Susan.
2. Being different isn't bad unless you think it's bad and you don't like yourself because of it.
