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 lasting impact."
-The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
Annotation:
Written by the author of the Secrets of Droon series, this serious middle-grade novel is about the poignant friendship between two junior high school outcasts. Tom, a fat kid with intense fantasies about being a superhero, and Jessica, a new classmate receiving treatment for horribly disfiguring burns, forge an unexpected attachment to one another. This is an affecting story about friendship, trust, and leaving shyness behind.
