    1. At first, I couldn't stop rolling my eyes because Tom and his friend Jeff were the kind of boys I knew when I was, say, ten, and really didn't like. Rambunctous, show-offy, really annoying--yeah, those ones, the ones who would pull on the pig tails of a pretty girl or dare each other to snap the bra strap of another. But then Jessica Feeney joins their seventh grade class. Jessica has been burned so badly that her face and body are supremely disfigured, almost heinous to look at. She's enrolled [...]


    2. This is a great book for helping kids think about what it means to be an outsider. The book is narrated by a Catholic school boy, and tells about the short period of time when Jessica Feeney, a young girl who'd been terribly burned, joined the class. The book doesn't flinch away from hard truths and doesn't lecture or condescend to younger readers. The book openly acknowledges that Jessica, with her hard experience and terrible scars, is not the same as her classmates. It explores the fear and g [...]



    3. ***SPOILER***SPOILER***SPOILER***SPOILER***SPOILER***This was so surprisingly amazing! Amazing writer that puts the enormous feelings of wanting to be excepted in public view in a simple-to-understand way. This is such a precious book. Tom has a best friend whom he has been friends with for almost 4 years now. They hang out together all the timeuntil a new girl comes to class and seperates them, without anybody really realizing it until it's too late. The new girl is named Jessica and the two fr [...]


    4. I like this book because it talks about a girl who really likes this boy but when she makes a friendship line with everyone in her classes and someone burns her picture by the boy she likes and she tries to find out who did it also towards the end she feels like not going to school because she afraid of people teasing her and other stuff's going on in school. I recommend this book to people who has a friendship with a boy and they wanna know why there friendship isn't working.


    5. Firegirl is a fantastic book and a quick read. Tom is a great character who is easy to relate to. You really find yourself rooting for this protagonist and the "Firegirl."


    6. For a young adult book, I can't imagine this book has had much success among young people. It's a heavy read, with little action to move the plot forward in a compelling way, and the narrator is not a very convincing seventh grade boy.The story - about how a young girl who has disfiguring burns is placed in the narrator's class - works best as a coming of age fable - a tale about the moments when a young person moves closer to the person they would like to be as an adult. Becomes compassionate, [...]


    7. I knew a burned guy. He was 5 or 6 years older than I was, and it happened while he was huffing gas. And it's true, whether it's the young kids in Firegirl, or the people I knew at the time when that guy got burned, there's some sick thing where people want it to be the person's own fault, something specifically deserved, so it couldn't just happen to anybody. Like Tom's friend Jeff in the book, kids were cruel even about this guy I knew. I remember my cousin who went to school with the guy's si [...]


    8. Firegirl is a touching, sad, and memorable novel. It may sound like a book about a superhero, but it's nothing like that! It starts when the new girl, Jessica Feeney, who is "badly burned," comes into Tom Bender's 7th grade class--but only because she needs to go to a infirmary in that area. Everyone is afraid of her--except for Tom. When everyone (including his friends) keeps making fun of Jessica, Tom tells them to stop, but even so, they keep going and that results in him just not being their [...]


    9. It took me a couple chapters to get into this book and then I ended really enjoying it. It's short, I read it in one evening while watching a movie with my kids. A good message on how little things we do can make a difference to others.



    10. This book is something I thouroughly dislike for many reasons. If you wish for your sanity to remain intact, do not read this book.


    11. Firegirl, written by Tony Abbott is a story about friendship, bullies and fitting in. Much like Wonder this story is about finding who you are on the inside an not who you are on the outside. The theme of this book is people come and go so quickly out of your life, so take advantage of them while they are there.It all starts with when a girl named Jessica Feeney walks into Tom's class at St. Catherine's School. Without a doubt the entire class knew right away that Jessica was different. Her face [...]


    12. I read this book because I was looking for Wonder read-alikes. Although this has some similar themes because a girl named Jessica with severe burns temporarily joins a high school class, it doesn't have the depth of Wonder, or the humor. I think it might work well for teens who like problem fiction. The main character works through issue of peer pressure and figuring out the kind of person he wants to be. Jessica gets some cold reactions from her classmates, even though some try to engage her in [...]


    13. What an interesting story. I actually listened to the audio book on CD, and throroughly enjoyed the narration. The story is about a boy, Tom, and how he and his class of 7th graders react to a new girl at school who has suffered severe burns all over her body.The descriptions of Jessica - Firegirl as Tom's so-called friend Jeff calls her - do make you cringe and cause you to identify with what Tom feels and observes in his classmates.But Tom also thinks the class's treatment of Jessica is wrong, [...]


    14. this book is truly inpiring, is you love the books wonder and any other simaliar book, then this book is for you.


    15. This book is very touching and has a good theme in it. It talks about a girl named Jessica Feeney who has been in a fire and survives. When Jessica comes out of the fire her face is deformed. People don't treat her as the everyday average person she is. Most people are scared when they look at her face and that's hard on her. A seventh grade boy named Tom has a heart of stone and he helps Jessica gets through her struggles. I think this book has a great message to not judge a book by its cover. [...]


    16. Firegirl is about Tom Bender, a middle schooler who befriends Jessica, the new girl had been burned in a fire accident. This book is for those who enjoy quick reads that still have a profound impact. It addresses bullying, the power of friendships, and how the smallest gestures can make a big difference (even if you don't realise it). And don't let the cheesy synopsis deter you from reading this!


    17. This book was so intriguing. It reminded me of Wonder, but it was definitely a very different story. I appreciated it and it tugged at my heartstrings, but of course I wished that some things in the book were resolved differently. I'm not really sure how I feel about this one yet!


    18. This book reminds me of the story by Sharon M. Draper ¨Out of my Mind¨. This was a story of true friendship. This story made me even cry at the end because it was so sweet. I really recommend this book to kids about maybe ages 8 and up.


    19. This was a pretty nice little school life drama. It moves pretty quickly, with something interesting happening in every chapter, which to me is a huge plus with any book. And another huge plus - I could completely relate to the characters.But let's start from the beginning. Firegirl follows Tom, a regular 7th grade kid who is like many other kids - he is somewhat envious of his best friend, Jeff, and he has a crush on a girl named Courtney. Tom regularly daydreams about being a hero and saving C [...]


    20. "'There is' Mrs. Tracy was saying quietly, 'there is something you need to know about Jessica", a quote from the novel, Firegirl by Tony Abbott. For this chubby, shy boy ,Tom, his life changes when Jessica Feeney enters his seventh grade class. The teacher, Mrs. Tracy made two announcements; there would be a class election and they have acquired a new student. Tom was so determined to nominate his crush, Courtney, for class president that he completely dismissed the second announcement until she [...]


    21. Reviewed by Me for TeensReadTooFor Tom Bender, seventh grade isn't all that different from the grades that came before. He still attends a private Catholic school, St. Catherine's. He's still pretty much best friends with Jeff Hicks. He still loves the Cobra, a sports car that he spends plenty of time dreaming about. The few things that are different this year? He has great teacher, Mrs. Tracy. Jeff's uncle actually owns a Cobra, and Jeff has promised Tom a ride in it. He's in love with Courtney [...]


    22. This slim realistic novel is about 7th grader Tom who learns to deal with fear and friendship when a new girl, Jessica Feeney with a face and body so horribly burned in an accident that her skin looks "melted," becomes a member of their class. The story centers around Tom and his friendship with Jeff whose parents recently divorced and has left Jeff madder than heck at the world. Jeff's anger has made him uncaring toward others, including Tom. Tom gets frustrated with Jeff's hate-the-world attit [...]


    23. This story actually deserves 4.5 stars - it was as thought provoking, sad and truthful as WONDER and should be read by anyone 8+Tom is shy at school, his only friend being Jeff Hicks, who is a little "off the wall" sometimes. Most days they hang out after school at Jeff's house and talk cars, and comics. They sit next to each other in class (their desks in surname alpha order) and like their teacher Mrs Tracy. Jeff knows that Tom's favourite car is a Cobra - "the big fat one, not the skinny ones [...]


    24. Review Originally Posted in blackplumeAfter the fire that almost burned down our living room last week I saw this book while cleaning my TBR shelf. I remember buying this one almost a month ago because it reminds me of Katniss a.k.a. “The girl on fire” and Stargirl. I decided to finally pick up the book for a short read and I never put it down until the end.The title suggest that this story is about Jessicca, a girl who is severly burned by fire and moved town to attend school near the hospi [...]


    25. We listened to this on tape (excellently read, by the way) on the way to Utah. It pulled me in right away! It was almost hard to concentrate on the road. Tom is a regular boy in a Catholic school. When Jessica--a girl who was burned almost to death--moves into their class for a few weeks to be closer to a burn specialty hospital, it changes him. He's normal, a little selfish, and scared of the way she looks. The thing that's different about Tom is every time his friends speak unkindly, he gets a [...]


    26. Tom is in Year 7 at Junior High in the US. He shares everything with his best friend, Jeff - except his crush on Courtney. Tom fantasises about rescuing Courtney from all sorts of situations and is always trying to impress her. Into their lives walks Jessica Feeney - a new girl like no other they have met before.Jessica has survived a terrible fire, which left her with horrific scars. Some kids, including Tom's friend Jeff, cant' even look at her without feeling sick and disgusted. Rumours start [...]


    27. The book Firegirl, written by Tony Abbott is a fiction story about a girl named Jessica and her classmates. Jessica Feeney was a regular girl until she got into a very bad accident. Ever since her accident she has been moving a lot because she needs to go to different hospitals for different treatments. She then moves into Tom's class at St. Catherine’s Catholic School. Mrs. Tracey is the teacher of the class that Jessica will be moving into. One day Mrs. Tracey announces that Jessica will be [...]


    28. What the plot is about is a girl was in a fire and her whole body was like burned and then she went to a new school and then she tried to make friends except every one is like what in the heck is wrong with her. That is messed up because you do not judge people on just the way they look, and that is the theme And she is really shy probably because she has burns all over her body and ya.A cause that happens in the book is she is burned when she was young and then she looks really nasty and gross [...]
