I well remember trying to fake my school eye exam. But the nurse was onto me and the verdict was in: glasses. The horror!
As a child Jenny Lundquist wished her eyeglasses had magic powers. She’s grown up now and written Seeing Cinderella, a delightful tween novel where her wish comes true.
From Amazon: 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?
