It wasn't much, really, the whole Jessican Feeney thing.
Summary from the book:
A middle school boy's life is changed when Jessica, a girl disfigured by burns, starts attending his Catholic school while receiving treatment at a local hospital.
A good story to recommend for reluctant readers and to include in a display on prejudices or odd man out type of books.
