A middle school student, Jessica Feeney, has just moved to a new school to be closer to a better hospital for her burn treatments after she was badly burned in a fire. She has to face everyone after what happened. Everyone looks at her with fear and curiosity but no one wants to come close or talk to her. This is also Tom’s story of becoming Jessica’s classmate and friend, no matter what he loses in doing so.
