I just spent a delicious several days reading Stargirl and Love, Stargirl. Oh my goodness, how I love these books. Have you read them? They are all about being yourself, and the complexities, or not, of doing that. Stargirl, the girl, is a true "original"--I guess we all are, aren't we?--but she's not afraid to show it. How come it takes some of us so long to embrace who we are and to feel comfortable being ourselves? Stargirl has a lot to teach us, I think. Now I'm feeling all bereft without a book; do you know that feeling? I'm on the lookout for my next good read . . .
