Love, Stargirl

Love, Stargirl - I loved it, just as I loved Stargirl, but for one thing that got in my way:I do not like Dootsie Pringle.I think I, the reader, am supposed to like her, to be charmed by her. But she's often unpleasant, needy, pushy, and selfish. The phrase that kept coming to mind was "need machine".
