Description
Stargirl has moved and left everything behind: Arizona, Mica High, enchanted desert places–and Leo. He’s all she can think about, and her life begins to feel like a parade of unhappy anniversaries. Then Stargirl meets her wonderfully bizarre new neighbors: Dootsie, the curly-headed five-year-old “human bean”; Betty Lou, who hasn’t stepped outside her house for nine years; Charlie, who sits among the tombstones; hot-tempered Alvina with that one glittery nail; and Perry Delloplane, the blue-eyed thief who soon lays his own claim to Stargirl’s heart. In letters to Leo over the course of a year, Stargirl comes to find hope in new places: mockingbirds, donut angels, moon flowers, and the Winter Solstice. But what’s life without Leo? Will he–can he–answer that one crucial question she asks every morning to the rising sun?

      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Mandy Siegfried gives a multilayered portrayal of heroine Stargirl, who is sometimes a font of optimism and creativity and other times a girl with a broken heart. The story is told in a letter from Stargirl to her ex-boyfriend, Leo, telling him about her move from Arizona to Pennsylvania. Soon Stargirl meets the eccentric 6-year-old Dootsie, whom Siegfried depicts with an appropriately childish pitch. Then there's gruff Elvina, an 11-year-old bully and "doughnut angel," who delivers dozens of goodies to agoraphobic Betty Lou. These are a few of the quirky characters expertly portrayed by Siegfried. S.W. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine

        July 16, 2007
        In Newbery Medalist Spinelli’s sequel to his 2000 novel Stargirl
        , readers join the eponymous heroine and find out how she is coping after being dumped by Leo Borlock. Having moved from Arizona to Pennsylvania, Stargirl records her thoughts, observations and emotions in near daily (unsent) missives to Leo, as she works to move beyond her sadness. Her entries are peppered with poetry as well as little pep talks she writes to herself whenever her spirits are low. (“You have your whole life ahead of you, and all you’re doing is looking back. Grow up, girl. There are some things they don’t teach you in homeschool.”) Stargirl spends most of her time with a talkative six-year-old, Dootsie, a grumpy girl named Alvina, and a handful of older locals with their own quirks and problems. She also meets a boy with a mysterious past; their brief romance and other events combine to lift Stargirl out of her doldrums, as she reconciles her feelings about Leo (“You be you and I’ll be me, today and today and today, and let’s trust the future to tomorrow”). Readers should embrace Stargirl’s originality and bigheartedness, and may be inspired to document their own emotional ups and downs in the Stargirl Journal
        , available the same month, which consists of blank lined pages with quotations from both novels. Ages 12-up.

        January 1, 2008
        Gr 6-10-In Jerry Spinelli's sequel (Knopf, 2007) to "Stargirl" (Knopf, 2000), Stargirl and her family have moved from Arizona and are living in Pennsylvania. Listeners join Stargirl a year after she was dumped by her boyfriend, Leo. Stargirl shares her life through her self-proclaimed "world's longest letter" to Leo, introducing several eccentric people: Dootsie, a precocious six-year-old girl; Betty Lou, an agoraphobic divorcee; Alvina, a lively 11-year-old girl with an occasional temper; and the mysterious Perry, a boy who often evokes unsettling emotions in Stargirl. With experiences that bring alternating happiness and sadness, Stargirl begins to find acceptance. On occasion, parts of the letter drag a bit. Mandy Siegfried gives each character a unique voice, and her perfectly pitched and well-timed narration brings listeners into Stargirl's world. While a familiarity with the first novel would be "helpful, this sequel does stand on its own.Stephanie A. Squicciarini, Fairport Public Library, NY"
