LibrisNotes: Fire Girl by Tony Abbott

Tom's description is graphic. I looked at her, then away, and then back at her. I couldn't believe I was looking at the face of someone alive Her lips were swollen.

The nearly filled the space between her nose and chin.

Her eyes peeked out from behind skin that looked melted Her fingers were bent as if she were trying to grab something. Firegirl by tony abbott discovered that if you didn't see the edge or her face or her hand or arm lying on the desk, she looked almost like any girl with dirty hair.

Firegirl Book Review

It almost began to feel as if there was a person in there. Tom sees past Jessica's outer disfigurement and recognizes that "Jessica was smart and nice and she'd been to lots of schools, so she knew how things worked. Tracy doesn't hear him and he feels like he has failed.

By the end of the novel, Tom, who initially found it difficult to hold Jessica's hand in class finds himself hugging her and crying when they say good bye. He even knows her eye colour.

From this point Tom begins an uneasy friendship with Jessica. Tom describes himself as the sweaty, chubby kid. He feels that nobody firegirl by tony abbott notices firegirl by tony abbott. This accounts for his sensitivity as he interacts with Jessica.
