From the Publisher
"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
-The Bulletin of the Center for Children''s Books
