Prepare for the movie by reading the book —and dig deeper into the book with the Stargirl Boomerang (literature-based language arts guide)!
Brave Writer mom Christyn shared her experience working through the Stargirl Boomerang with her daughter:
Stargirl was a book and Boomerang selected on a whim, a last-minute addition to our fall semester…and I’m so glad I made that choice. The story of this smart and whimsical homeschooled teenager fit perfectly with our overarching theme of “identity” this year and opened up some poignant conversations, especially when paired with the Think Piece Questions.
My daughter and I both enjoyed the “Try It!” sections: Week One’s playing with metaphors was a favorite.
The Boomerang guided us deep into the book, drawing our attention to figurative language, setting, and dialogue, and a discussion of how the author’s specific choices enhanced the story.
The “Inside Scoop” and “Beyond the Passage” sections added another layer of insight and discussion. To paraphrase from the Week One dictation passage, I was perpetually astonished at the depth of the story that the Boomerang unlocked for us, but I never had to wonder what we might be missing: the Boomerang’s attention to detail covered everything the story had to offer.
We <3 Stargirl — and immediately ordered the sequel, “Love, Stargirl”!
Note: The “Inside Scoop” and “Beyond the Passage” sections were added to the Boomerangs in August 2019.
Stargirl is a quick read with lots of topics to inspire Big Juicy Conversations with teens!
