Tom, a seventh grader, tells about the arrival of Jessica, a new student who was badly burned in a fire and is attending St. Catherine's while she gets treatments at a local hospital. The students in Tom's class are afraid of Jessica and shy away from her because of her appearance. Little by little Tom develops a friendship with her that changes his life.
