I think this book is a good study of how we treat people who are different than us and how we expect people to conform to certain social norms. I think it's the kind of book a teacher would love to read to the class to talk about how we treat each other and I think there are some great messages in this book. I would probably recommend it for Grades 6 and up, although it looks like it could be for Grade 4 and up.
On Jerry's website -www.jerryspinelli.com - you can find out how to start up your own Stargirl society and apparently this book is going to be made into a movie so I imagine we will keep hearing about it once it hits the theatres!
