The book Stargirl is a story about a young girl that starts going to a public school after being homeschooled all her life. The characters are Stargirl Callay, Leo Borlock , Archie, Cinamon the Rat, Kevin , amd Hillary Kimbel. The book is writtten from the view of a boy named Leo Borlock. From the day she arrives at quiet Mica High school in a burst of color and sound, the hallways buzz with "Stargirl". She captures the heart of Leo by just one glance. She sparkes School-spirt but just one cheer. The students of Mica High are enchanted. At first, they turn on her. Stargirl is suddenly shunned from every thing that makes her different.
