“There is . . . ,” Mrs. Tracy was saying quietly, “there is something you need
to know about Jessica. . . .”

From this moment on, life is never quite the same for Tom and his seventh-grade classmates. Despite Jessica’s shocking 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. Firegirl is a powerful story that will show listeners that even the smallest of gestures can have a profound impact on someone’s life.

“It’s a beautiful story, a sad story, brilliantly written, a story you’ll never forget.”

    " Loved how this book really made me think about how kids handle "different" people, especially their age. Can't wait to read this one aloud to a grade six class. "

    " My friends who read ",Star Girl," recommended this book to me. This book is about an ordinary boy named Tom. Tom is always daydreaming about how to save the life of this girl named Courtney he likes. One day a new girl comes to class, she is not a normal student. Her name is Jessica and she had been badly burned. Jessica has changed the perspective of Tom. At first he was like the rest of the students, afraid,disgusted. Although Jessica and Tom weren't friends for a long period of time, Jessica changed Tom. My favorite quote is ",As if there was a person in there," the reason is because this is the moment when Tom realizes Jessica isn't some abnormal girl, she is a normal girl on the inside. The author's writing style is quite boring, this is a book that does not make me keep flipping pages. I would recommend this book for maybe people a younger age. It gives the lesson to not judge people by their physical looks. "

    " I just finished reading this book as a read aloud with my 2 boys (ages 7 & 10). They both really enjoyed it and this book kept us talking about people, feelings and choices. Great way to get children to consider other people's feelings. "
