About the Author:

Tony Abbott is the author of over 35 books for young readers, including the extremely popular Secrets of the Droon series, which has sold over 4.5 million books to date. He has worked in a bookstore and libraries, and currently lives in Connecticut with his wife and two daughters.

From AudioFile:

Unremarkable Tom Benders predictable year at Saint Catherines is shaken up when Jessica Feeny arrives. She is temporarily enrolled while shes being treated at a local burn hospital. Sean Kenin employs a believable seventh-grade-boys voice as Tom navigates a lopsided, needy friendship with his only friend, Jeff Hicks, and imagines ways to attract the attention of the lovely Courtney Zisky. Kenin gives Tom the fast-paced, self-absorbed voice typical of the young adolescent. We hear him wrestle between the aversion he feels toward the hideously disfigured Jessica and the compassion he feels for a fellow outcast. As he comes out of his shell, he tentatively reaches out in friendship and finds a courage he didnt know he possessed.

Book Description Softcover. Book Condition: New. "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.
