“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.” –Newbery Honor winner Patricia Reilly Giff
