From the Publisher
Annotation At 15, Wendy's eyesight is so bad that without her glasses, everything is pretty much a big blur. Which means she's stuck looking totally stupid in her hideous frames--no contacts allowed for three more years!--and feels like a moron. Her perceptions of herself and others changes dramatically after she finds a pair of discarded sunglasses that not only seem to be her exact prescription but that--when she puts them on--show people as they truly are. (Some classmates are actual witches and elves.) An opening to another world seems to be right across the street from her house, and suddenly, her nearsightedness all but forgotten, Wendy is sucked into a crazy chase involving time travel, her grandmother, and a cute elf named Julian.
Editors Note Wendy isn't as blind as a bat--there are bats that can see better than she can. Which is why, when her new glasses break, she's all too happy to wear the dorky pair of sunglasses she finds on the lawn. They seem to match her prescription, and that's all that matters if she's going to be able to make it through her school day.||But the glasses correct her vision too much. She begins to see things that no one else can see: cheerful corpses, frightening crones disguised as teenyboppers, and portals to other worlds--places where people are all too aware of the magical properties of her new shades . . . and will do anything to get them.
