Remember When? (A look back at important events in literary history—author birthdays, book/character debuts, and dates in books)

Staff Pick from Jamie
I recommend Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli (published in 2000). This is a great YA fiction book about embracing the uniqueness that is you. The main characters face the typical challenges of middle and high school, as well as moving to a new school. Along the way, they learn about the impact we all have on others as we come into our own selves.
