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?
From the Publisher:
Still moping months after being dumped by her Arizona boyfriend Leo, fifteen-year-old Stargirl, a home-schooled free spirit, writes "the world's longest letter" to Leo, describing her new life in Pennsylvania. Simultaneous.
Annotation:
Written in the format of an extremely long letter to her darling ex-boyfriend, Leo, Stargirl Caraway retains her open-hearted views, unearthly presence, and sweet behavior in this follow-up to STARGIRL. Having left Mica High behind, Stargirl is home-schooling again in a new town, making a host of quirky friends. As she shares everything with Leo, this sequel again captures Stargirl's uniquely endearing and bewitching worldview.
