Tom is a typical seventh grader who enjoys comic books and cool cars.  As school starts, his
class gains a new student - Jessica, a girl who has severe burns from surviving a fire.  Tom and his classmates aren't sure what to say or do, because Jessica looks so different.  When Tom's teacher asks him to drop off some homework for her, he gets a chance to get to know Jessica.

Mrs. Senechal says:
This book was hard to read because you never want to think of someone suffering, like Jessica did.  However, I think the story is a great reminder that we cannot decide how to treat people just based on their looks.  The author realisticly described Tom's thoughts and feelings, and I liked how the story developed.
