Read full description of the books Love, Stargirl:
Still moping months after being dumped by her Arizona boyfriend Leo, fifteen-year-old Stargirl, a home-schooled free spirit, writes "the world's longest letter" to Leo, describing her new life in Pennsylvania. About The Author: About the Author Born in Norristown, Pennsylvania in 1941, Jerry Spinelli attended Gettysburg College and Johns Hopkins University. Students, teachers and librarians from all over the world enjoy Spinelli's funny and true-to-life books. Spinelli was an editor with Chilton from 1966 to 1989. He launched his career in children's literature with Space Station Seventh Grade in 1982, followed by Who Put That Hair in My Toothbrush? in 1984. In 1991, Spinelli won the Newbery Award and the Boston Globe/Horn Book Award for Maniac Magee (1990). He followed this success with such engaging titles as Fourth Grade Rats (1991), Do the Funky Pickle (1992), Who Ran My Underwear Up the Flagpole? (1992), and Picklemania (1993), among others. In 1998, his book Wringer was named a Newbery Honor book. With over 19 published books to his credit, Spinelli finds writing comes easiest when he's dressed comfortably in blue jeans, a flannel shirt and moccasins. Spinelli and his wife, Eileen, have seven children and 11 grandchildren.
Read information about the authorWhen Jerry Spinelli was a kid, he wanted to grow up to be either a cowboy or a baseball player. Lucky for us he became a writer instead.
He grew up in rural Pennsylvania and went to college at Gettysburg College and Johns Hopkins University. He has published more than 25 books and has six children and 16 grandchildren.
Jerry Spinelli began writing when he was 16 — not much older than the hero of his book Maniac Magee. After his high school football team won a big game, his classmates ran cheering through the streets — all except Spinelli, who went home and wrote a poem about the victory. When his poem was published in the local paper, Spinelli decided to become a writer instead of a major-league shortstop.
In most of his books, Spinelli writes about events and feelings from his own childhood. He also gets a lot of material from his seven adventurous kids! Spinelli and his wife, Eileen, also a children's book author, live in Pennsylvania.
