Forgotten Friday (2)

Forgotten Friday is something new here at bookmarked! After researching other memes, I discovered there really weren't any that featured the books we've always wanted to read but keep forgetting about. This is an idea I've had floating around for a while because I am notorious for wanting to read old releases and getting side tracked by the new books constantly coming out.

This week's featured book is . . .

first published August 2000

I read several of Jerry Spinelli's books when I was a kid including Wringer, Maniac Magee, and Library Card, but I never got around to Stargirl. I probably would have had a happier adolescence if I had. A story of individuality and quirkiness, I wish I hadn't waited so long to read it, but I know I'll enjoy it more when I finally do. What book(s) do you think you've missed out on?

If you'd like to join the fun and share your Forgotten Friday post, please include your name and link below!


  1. My daughter loved this book! In fact, she loves anything and everything by Spinelli! Great choice..


  2. I adored Stargirl and Love, Stargirl. They are both wonderful.

  3. One of my students wouldn't stop gushing about this book, so I read it myself and learned why she was entranced by it.
