DUE DATE: Friday, Dec. 2nd

In Stargirl, by Jerry Spinnelli, the character’s real name is Susan Caraway, but she goes by “Stargirl.” She explains this:

“I’m not my name. My name is something I wear, like a shirt. It gets worn. I outgrow it, I change it.”

What name actually fits you best right now? Is your regular one worn out? Pick a new name and explain why that name fits you now.
