Transcript of STARGIRL - Themes

Appearance "A 1920's flapper dress. An Indian Buckskin. A kimono. One day she wore a denim miniskirt with

pg.10 '"Normal" for her were long, floor-brushing pioneer dresses and skirts.'
pg.10 "She was elusive. She was today. She was tomorrow. She was the faintest scent of a cactus flower, the flitting shadow of an elf owl."

pg.15 Her lips faintly smiling. Her golden skin. The glowing thread ends of her hair. She seemed to have been dipped in sunlight and set here to dry.

pg.93 "Keep looking at her
