Seeing Cinderella
Sixth grade is not going well for Calliope Meadow Anderson. Callie's hair is frizzy, her best friend, Ellen, is acting weird, and to top things off, she has to get glasses. And her new specs aren't even cute, trendy glasses--more like hideously large and geeky. But Callie soon discovers that her glasses have a special, magical perk.

This book was funny, and only a little bit predictable. Good moral in the end.

Callie is entering Grade 7 and needs glasses. She already thinks she is different since her hair is frizzy, she has lots of freckles and she loves to write in her journal - glasses will only make her more different. The glasses she gets on loan until hers come in are particularly ugly but when school starts and she wears the glasses she finds she can read people`s thoughts. This might seem to be a good thing but it isn’t because she finds out what people really think of her. When the drama teacher announces that they will be performing Cinderella, Callie does not want to act but she is cast as an understudy anyway. Thanks to the glasses, Callie finds that you can’t judge people by what you see on the surface. Reviewed by BPL volunteer EE.
