A staple from my childhood, dive into the story of Stargirl Caraway (what a name, am I right?), a high schooler who is unapologetically herself no matter what anyone has to say about it. This book taught a whole generation of kids (myself included) that being yourself should be your goal in life. 5/5 stars *wink*
