Praise
"This novel may be brief, but it leaves a big impact."
From the Publisher
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.
Editors Note "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
