"...there is..." Mrs. Tracy was saying quietly, "there is something we need to know about Jessica..."
From this moment on, life is never quite the same for Tom and his seventh-grade classmates. They learn that Jessica has been in a fire and was badly burned, and will be attending St. Catherine's while getting medical treatments. Despite her horrifying appearance and the fear she evokes in him and most of the class, Tom slowly develops a tentative friendship with Jessica that changes his life.
Tony Abbott is the author of over 35 books for young readers, including the extremely popular The Secrets of Droon series. In Firegirl he has written a powerful book that will show readers that even the smallest of gestures can have a profound impact on someone's life.

This book was poopish
Small book, but big meaning
I thought that this book was kind of slow, and I knew it was a small book so nothing huge was going to happen. But, the parts that were about Jessica, I thought had big meaning put into. This book may not be totally interesting, but it definitely teaches you a life lesson.
A good book
It was very interesting but it could be a little longer of a sample
