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.

"The theme of acceptance is presented in a touching story of friendship that is easy to read yet hard to forget." (School Library Journal)
My teenage son and I had a long road trip ahead of us. I decided to download Firegirl to listen to on the way. Even though my son rolled his eyes when the story started he listened to the whole story! This was a starting point to several great discussions and a very enjoyable trip! Book was well written and the performance was smooth. A+
