Love, Stargirl Summary & Study Guide
Love, Stargirl is a young adult novel by Jerry Spinelli. The book is the sequel to the New York Times bestselling book, Stargirl , and centers on "the world's longest letter" in diary form. It picks up where the previous novel left off after Stargirl left Mica High and describes her bittersweet memories in the town of Mica, Arizona along with the involvements of new people in her life, in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania. New in town, homeschooled, and feeling rejected by Leo, the year-old narrator of the first book who had fallen under her spell, she is lonely and sad—her "happy wagon," where she keeps stones representing her level of happiness, is almost empty. She befriends Dootsie, a noisy but lovable 6-year-old who takes a shine to Stargirl and wants to switch. Dootsie introduces her to Betty Lou, an agoraphobic elderly woman.

She befriends Dootsie, a loud but lovable 6-year-old who takes a shine to Stargirl and her pet rat. Dootsie introduces her to Betty Lou, an agoraphobic elder woman.
