"This novel may be brief, but it leaves a big impact."
-Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Tom''s a normal seventh-grader, negotiating a slightly prickly stage in his long friendship with Jeff...The arrival of new girl Jessica Feeney, however, changes everything; Jessica, who is attending a local hospital for treatment, has been badly burned by a fire, and her terrible disfigurement shocks the class into confusion. This isn''t the usual book about adjustment to difference; instead, Abbott brilliantly explores the kids'' struggle to manage the intrusion of abnormality in their lives...this is a thoughtful exploration of a brief interlude''s lasting impact."
-The Bulletin of the Center for Children''s Books
