Some of my many talents include making a mean box of Mac & Cheese, drawing stick figures, designing cute blog templates, and finding Waldo. I read and write MG and YA & I have a soft spot for love stories.

Love, Stargirl

Love, Stargirl - I liked this book a lot, though not quite as much as the first one. This had the same type of magical writing, the type that pulls you into the story and makes you forget what's happening around you. I do kind of wish that Stargirl was shown a little more ... strongly. She's so vibrant in the first book, and it takes her a long time to get that back after everything that happened with Leo. Also, I think it's strange that she doesn't really have any friends her own age, except for her crush. (Which, also was weird, because from the way he was first described, I pictured him as a much younger boy, and then it turned out he was her age ... Maybe I missed that when he was introduced initially, but yeah...) Another thing I thought was weird was her homeschooling. With the type of homeschooling she had, I think she would always have a really, really hard time in real life. Going to college, getting a job - these are all things that I don't think she's given much thought to (or her mother who's homeschooling her) and I wish that someone with her loving personality had more of a plan for her future. The writing style of this book is so lyrical though. I loved reading it and didn't want it to end.
