Book Talk

Spinelli always creates memorable characters and Stargirl achieves the same.  What a wonderful look at how things could be in high school.  Cheering for the other team could never happen in our current high schools, but just thinking about it made me smile.  What would have to change for our young people to be like that? What failures of our society does this one glimpse give? What ever happened to enjoying sport for the beauty of the game? Everything is about winning now and not just in sports.  That is why Stargirl's perspective is so intoxicating.
