One of the first things you learn while working in public service is that there is much more behind the headlines. Firegirl is one of those books that talks about the “after” and the rumors, gossip, and innuendo that follow people who are visibly changed by what has happened to them.
A powerful coming of age story and must-read for those who facilitate dialogue about community and societal change.
This is ideal for the tween and teen age groups and talks about the choice of following your consciousness or following the group. It also addresses how people show their true colors when confronted with someone who makes them uncomfortable.
Another must read by Mr. Abbott!
