Seeing Cinderella (Hardcover)
|Author: Jenny Lundquist|
From the Publisher:
Calliope Meadow Anderson ("Callie") is not having a good start to her sixth grade year. Her hair is frizzy, her best friend, Ellen, is acting weird, and, to top things off, she found out that she needs glasses. And they aren't exactly cute, rhinestone-studded, trendy glasses--they are hideously large and geeky.
But Callie soon finds out that they aren't just any glasses--they are magical. And she can read people's thoughts.
As if dealing with these crazy glasses aren't enough, Callie is shocked when she tries out for the lead in her school play, Cinderella--and actually gets the part. But much to the chagrin of her drama teacher, she chooses to be the understudy to Ellen instead. Add in a new girl who definately has something to hide, and Callie's sixth-grade year just went from ordinary to extraordinary.
Can this supporting actress learn to be a leading lady in her own life? Or will she be destined to stay in the background forever--even with those super-freaky-magical glasses?
