After high school, and right before Leo goes off to college, Archie calls him over to his house to see his toolshed. Archie tells Leo that it was Stargirl's office and he goes in to find files she created on everyone in town. Leo calls her a spy, but Archie calls it "a lovely treason" (179). Stargirl is simply a very thoughtful and engaging girl. It's too bad that people couldn't, or wouldn't, be more compassionate or kind to her when she attended Micah Area High School.

As Leo is going over some of the files, he notices that Stargirl created a very large scrapbook entitled "The Early Life of Peter Sinkowitz" (179). Archie tells him that Stargirl gave him orders to wait five years and then give it to his parents. How nice is that? The problem is, Stargirl is not closely involved with many of the people to whom she gave gifts. A scrapbook of pictures is a very personal item that a mother or sister might create; so, she was a different person to accept for many people.
