Boy -- who is nice enough, but little inhibited, a little in need of some inspiration -- meets outrageous, free-spirited, earthy girl who changes his life forever by teaching him to stop caring what other people think and be silly and really live, man.
Stargirl goes to a lot of trouble to reach out to people, and she does it without asking for any sor of thanks, but bein someone sing " Happy Birthday " to you in the middle of a crowded room or broadcasting your love for someone without talking to them first has always struck me as somewhat inconsiderate.
It 's true that Stargirl is portrayed as completely innocent, and it 's ighly possible that she lacks the necessary social filters to understand why being serenaded with " Happy Birthday " is n't merely a desired gift, but it made me less sympathetic toward her.
Thi more succinct way to describe the last two paragraphs is this: the Stargirl character is inspiring but not original, and the heavy-handed message of Everyone Needs to Lighten Up and Be More Appreciative of Each Other is well-intentioned but shortsighted.Otherwise, the story was all right.
Stargirl might lack social filters, but Leo behaves like a complete ass to her, resulting in he story 's somewhat bitter ending.
She 's gone, so she 'll always be exactly as she was at sixteen and he can idolize her and righteously lament how perfect she was and how stupid he was.) But Stargirl does n't eserve the shitty way everyone has treated her, and she is probably at her most realistically human when she changes herself out of desire for Leo 's acceptance.
