Stargirl. She's as magical as the desert sky. As strange as her pet rat. As mysterious as the own name, Ande she captures leo Borlock's heart with just one smile.
but when the students of Mica High turn on Stargirl for everything that makes her different, Leo urges her to become the vey thing that can destroy her: normal. In a celebration of nonconformity, Newberry Medalist Jerry Spinelli weaves a tense, emotional tale about the perils of popularity - and the inspiration of first love.

Milkweed is the story of a poor Polish orphan at the beginning of World War II. The main character, Misha Pilsudski, has always wanted to be a Nazi soldier. All he thought it was were the fancy, shiny boots and the long warm coats. When he meets a fellow Jew, Janina, she tells him of all the horrors the Nazis are doing. Nevertheless, Misha still wants to be warm, fed, and comfortable. After the Nazis come and move all Jews into the ghettos Misha realizes just how awful they are. Since Misha and Janina are poor they have to steal food, water, firewood, and clothes sometimes just to get by. One day when Misha and Janina were going on their daily routine of stealing, Janina's father warns them to run away and never come back. Janina is intent on going back to see her father but she is captured on the streets by a train while Misha was able to escape. Misha goes to America where he can finally be safe. He marries a woman named Vivan but she is upsetted by his strange ways and leaves him. The book ends with him planting milkweeds in his garden, safe and sound.
This book was definitely one of my favorites. I love books about World War II and I think this is probably my second favorite book about the topic. Milkweed is a good book to read when you just want to read. It's interesting and keeps you reading. I finished this book in I think a day because I was just so intrigued. I would recommend this book to anyone. Probably from 5th grade would be a good level to read a book like this. I think everyone would love Milkweed.

Hay un nuevo estudiante en el escuela Mica y ella es tanto diferente que ella esta cambiando a todos.
La historia toma lugar en Mica, Arizona en el presente entonces los estudiantes tienen los actitudes de estudiantes en escuela secundaria en este tiempo.
Los personajes (en orden de la importancia) Leo, Stargirl, Kevin y Hillari. Al inicio Leo esta muy interesado con Stargirl y ello eventualmente muestra sus sentimientos verdaderos cuando Hillari odio a ella. Kevin solo es el mejor amigo de Leo. Al inicio todos (excepto a Hillari) le gustan a Stargirl pero cuando ella hace algo que los otros no le gustan se rechazan y rehuyen a ella.… (más)
