You know, I started reading this because I'm a senior in high school and I'm tired of assigned books of Great Literature. Don't get me wrong, The Scarlet Letter is one of my favorite novels ever, but I wanted something lighter and when I heard Stargirl, the book that WAS my sixth grade had a sequel And I loved it.
Oh god, do I love this book. It's God, I am so elated right now. It's as magical, sweet, emotional and zany as the first book, if not more so.
We hear the titular heroine speak, as you've probably noted from other reviews and she's really everything we could expect.
Dootsie introduces her to Betty Lou, an agoraphobic elderly woman.
She is quite nice and Stargirl soon becomes friends with her as well. They also share a very nice time watching flowers together. With the arrival of autumn , Stargirl's life is affected as she meets several new characters: Alvina, a grumpy young girl who delivers donuts to Betty Lou; Perry, a teen boy who Alvina is falling in love with; and Perry's "harem," The Honeybees.
As winter sets in, Stargirl plans a Winter Solstice party, inviting all of the people she has encountered in her new town to celebrate the beginning of winter by joining her at sunrise on her Enchanted Hill, which she now calls Calendar Hill.
Stargirl also discovers the truth about Perry, who has been very mysterious about his family and personal life. She learns his mother has a new baby, whom Perry has been trying to support by working several jobs and by resorting to "stealing" to avoid burdening her with feeding him.
In the end, Stargirl becomes worried that no one will show up for her solstice party, but is reassured by Archie, her former teacher, and friend from Arizona, who arrives to attend her celebration and comforts her with his wisdom. On the morning of the Winter Solstice, Stargirl is overwhelmed and surprised when a huge crowd of her friends and acquaintances, and several other people she's unfamiliar with, flock to Calendar Hill, including her friend Betty Lou who hasn't left her house in nine years.
The magic moment of sunrise is magnified by a special tent her parents have built, allowing the sunlight to stream in through a hole in the tent, forming a single beam that cuts through the crowd of people and pierces the back wall. Everyone is profoundly affected by the start of this new day and returns home to the start of a cold winter. In the end, Stargirl asks Archie what she should do about missing Leo, and about Perry.
He tells her to remember who she is and do what her heart tells her. Characters[ edit ] Susan Julia "Stargirl" Caraway is a unique teenager that has no boundaries when it comes to clothing or acts of kindness. She would go to the ends of the earth to achieve happiness, not for herself, but others.
She has many quirky acts that she not-so-subtly pulls off throughout the book, like dropping pennies on the sidewalk, starting a gardening business, meditating, befriending little girls, and going on milk runs with her father, a milkman. Her best friend is Dootsie, a spunky six-year-old that also has no boundaries Her love interest is Perry Delloplane, though he sends her mixed messages, going so far as to invite her to join his harem.
However, throughout the book she struggles with her feelings, trying to understand how she's feeling and whether her heart belongs to Leo or Perry. She also befriends Betty Lou Fern, an older agoraphobic neighbor of hers, mostly because of Betty Lou gifts Dootsie with yummy homemade treats and donuts.
Perry Delloplane is a juvenile boy about Stargirl's age. He is seen to be a delinquent, telling people he went to boot camp for a year, when he was actually staying with his aunt.
His mother is pregnant, and when his little sister is born, he shows a surprisingly caring, gentle side, and is extremely protective. He has an affection for Dootsie, but more as a sister. He likes to joke around with her, and she as well is quite smitten with him, even joining his harem. The Honeybees are Perry's harem, a club of open admirers who all fancy him.
He feels no shame in kissing them in public, often in front of other harem members, who don't mind, and going on dates with them, but never seriously. Betty Lou Fern is the agoraphobic middle-aged neighbor of Stargirl and Dootsie. She never leaves her house, and Stargirl and Dootsie come to visit her almost everyday.
Betty Lou gifts them with delicious treats, like Margie's donuts. Betty Lou has a soft spot for mockingbirds and flowers but was forced to give up their beauty after her fear becomes worse.
Betty Lou always has great advice for Stargirl on her romance indecision, and almost stands in place for Archie. She had a husband, whom she nicknamed "Mr.
Potato Nose" Alvina Klecko is a very unsociable tween going through a transformation between her tomboyish ways and her dolls. She tends to have a very confrontational demeanor, often pretending to ignore Stargirl's preachings, but listens and almost always heeds them in the end.
She delivers Betty Lou's Donuts, even after she was fired from Margie's. Alvina is also shown to have a little crush on Perry Delloplane, and a blond boy from her school.
Margie is the owner of a doughnut shop in the town Stargirl moves to.
