Overview

Seeing Cinderella (Mix Series) by Jenny Lundquist

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?

About the Author

Jenny Lundquist grew up in Huntington Beach, California, wearing glasses and wishing they had magic powers. They didn’t, but they did help her earn a degree in Intercultural Studies at Biola University. Jenny has painted an orphanage in Mexico, taught English at a university in Russia, and hopes one day to write a book at a café in Paris. Jenny and her husband live in northern California with their two sons and Rambo, the world’s whiniest cat.

This was a very cute book about relationships that I think will really resonate with tweens, especially those who struggle with a bit of shyness (*cough* like me) or wonder what the heck is going on with their friends (*cough* like I sure did at that age). Calliope (is that not the best name ever?) gets a gift of glasses that let her see the thoughts of the people around her, but in the end, they also help her see into herself, who she is and how she fits into the world.

This book is one of my favorite books. Once I started reading it, I just could not put it down. I literary brought this book wherever I went and whenever I had free time I would die to read the rest of the book. I hope you all thought this review was helpful ;)

Calliope Anderson (More casually known as Callie) Is NOT the most outgoing girl. Seventh grade is starting at Pacificview and Callie and her best friend Ellen are signing up for clubs and getting into middle school life. Translation- Ellen is doing that for Callie, even though she doesn't want it. Calliope isn't exactly popular with her new glasses- and to top it off, she can read people's thoughts with them too! Spying on classmates thoughts has gotten her a better grade in school, but they can't help her play the role of cinderella without losing Ellen!

Purchased Seeing Cinderella for great niece entering 6th grade. This book was displayed in B&N children's area. The attractive cover caught my attention w/theme--adjusting to middle school--sold the book. My niece's 5* rating--"Thank you for the book, Seeing Cinderella. It looked good so I read the back cover; and then it looked good so I read the first, second, third chapters until before I knew it, I had finished the book. It was great!"

If you think this is mostly fantasy its not its just tweens with drama ,"love" , etc and those types of problems and sorry if you like or dont like fantasy , but the only fantasy is , is the girl gets glasses that can make her read peoples mind which is barly a fantasy

For any tween girl and her mom (or dad or grandma or aunt)... Did I enjoy this book: I did enjoy this book. I read it every free chance I had and finished it in short order. Seeing Cinderella was a sweet, middle grade book that would be excellent for tween girls. We go along with Callie as she discovers the power of her new glasses. They allow Callie to read other people’s thoughts. This is both a blessing and a curse of sorts for Callie as she learns to navigate through this new world and truly learns what other people are experiencing and thinking. This book has a fantastic message – not everyone is as they seem. You have to look at a person to truly see them. You have to get to know them inside and out because you never know what that person is experiencing. Would I recommend it: I would recommend this book to any tween girl and their moms. It was a worthwhile read. Will I read it again: Maybe when my daughter is r

I LOVE the idea of magic glasses!!!! There's a little too much romance for me(she's only 11 i think) but overall a really good book.

I checked this book off of my school library shelf randomly because I couldn't find anything that looked good. I expected it to be really childish because of the title, but it is a great book for teens. I told a couple of people about the book and the next thing I know, there is a line of about 50 people asking if they can check it out after I returned it. I was really surprised to even see a couple boys. Everyone in my class(both boys & girls) read Seeing Cinderella bythe end of the year and loved it. I highly reccommend this book to anyone from the age of seven to twenty years old. Absolutely a five star rating!!! :^D
