Callie’s new glasses see more than what’s before her. Insight into her friends’ thinking deepens this middle-schooler’s vision. (9-13)

— From Coming of Age


Magical realism and a modern Cinderella story makes for a fun and relatable M X read.

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: When she wears them, she can read people's thoughts. Crazy glasses aside, Callie has more drama to face when she's cast as the lead in the school play--and instead opts to be an understudy, giving the role of Cinderella to Ellen. Can Callie's magic glasses help her see her way to leading lady, or is she destined to stay in the background forever?
