Disney's STARGIRL Gets a Movie-Tie Edition + Giveaway


STARGIRL
Author: Jerry Spinelli
Release Date: March 3rd 2020
Publisher: Ember


Fans of Jerry Spinelli’s beloved New York Times bestselling novel STARGIRL will soon see the story come to life with the Disney+ film adaptation, releasing on March 13 and starring America’s Got Talent winner Grace VanderWaal. To celebrate this exciting movie debut, Ember is publishing a movie tie-in edition of the book, which will feature cover art from the film and will be on sale March 3, retailing at $9.99. The story, still as timely as it was 20 years ago, focuses on friendship, first love, and being true to who you are, and was hailed by the New York Times as “a poetic allegorical tale about the magnificence and rarity of true nonconformity.” It’s time for a new generation of readers to meet Stargirl. . . .

Stargirl. From the day she arrives at quiet Mica High in a burst of color and sound, the hallways hum with the murmur of “Stargirl, Stargirl.” She captures Leo Borlock’s heart with just one smile. She sparks a school-spirit revolution with just one cheer. The students of Mica High are enchanted. At first.

Then they turn on her. Stargirl is shunned for everything that makes her different, and Leo, panicked and desperate with love, urges her to become the very thing that can destroy her: normal. In this celebration of nonconformity, Newbery Medalist Jerry Spinelli weaves a tense, emotional tale about the perils of popularity and the thrill and inspiration of first love.

With 2.5 million copies in print, and universal themes of bullying, fitting in, and peer pressure, STARGIRL continues to be widely embraced by readers, educators, and fans of all ages. And with the movie release, this poignant and unforgettable story is sure to resonate with a whole new generation of readers.

STARGIRL was a New York Times bestseller, a Publishers Weekly bestseller, and a Book Sense national bestseller, and was named a Parents’ Choice Gold Award Winner, a Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year, an ALA-YALSA Top Ten Best Book for Young Adults, a Book Sense Book of the Year finalist, a Bank Street College of Education Best Book of the Year, an ABC Best Books for Children Selection, a New York Public Library Book for the Teen Age, and a winner of the NAIBA Book Award for Children’s Literature.
