Calliope Callie Meadow Anderson is the quintessential wallflower By choice She is content to fade into the background, play second fiddle to her beautiful and clever best friend and her sole aim in life is to wade through the murky waters of middle school without any ripples.Her low self esteem can also be attributed to the fact that she is far from happy with her appearance A head full of frizzy red hair, freckles that have earned her the moniker of Polka Dot and the possibility of nerd glasses [...]

I love it when a book is not only written in a way that readers of all ages will be able to identify with it, but it delivers a great message for it s targeted audience Jenny Lundquist s debut, Seeing Cinderella is a fun, charming, fast paced read that really struck a chord with me Though I was never shy like the story s main character Callie, I still got her as a character I remembered what it was like to be in her shoes at that awkward age in middle school when you re trying to discover who yo [...]

    14. CHARMING I loved the style of this book and the characters were probably my favorite part The writing had a very comical twist because at times you just had to burst out laughing at Callie s awkwardness If you remember any part of your middle school days then I am sure you can relate to the funny and absurd thoughts that would sometimes enter Callie s mind However, she owned her awkwardness At first she was unsure of whom she was, but I love how Callie realizes that it is perfectly acceptable to [...]

    17. This book was AMAZING I loved it It s been awhile since I read a book where the main focus is friendship and Jenny did it so well While this book is a really fun read it also has very important topics and deals with lots of problems normal people face I loved the characters in this book, they re so real and relatable probably because this book is in the Mix real life, real you, series I loved the character development we get in the characters, especially Callie s Watching her become independent [...]

    18. Recommended for gr 5 9 Callie is dreading starting 7th grade, and dreading getting glasses for the first time even She is given a special pair of extremely dorky looking glasses by an unusual optometrist, and discovers that when she wears them she can see what other people are thinking This is both good and bad as she struggles with an unpleasant locker mate, the boy she has a crush on, her best friend, possible new friends, and her absent dad In the process, she learns that everyone has proble [...]

    20. I love this book, and I cant wait for my niece to read it I related to Callie in so many ways I wish I had this book when I was younger Middle School was the most insecure and awful experiences of my life I m not sure I would want magic glasses to see what everyone else was thinking, but as this book showse ability to see doesn t always mean that we truly see things for what they are Tears could not be held back from many of the things that see faced and laughs couldn t be stifled over the Super [...]

    21. I really wanted to like this but this is one of those it s me not you situations I might have enjoyed it when I was younger, but I found everything that was happening in the story way too predictable, and Callie s obviously disintegrating relationship with her best friend frustrating Having said that, there was a definite sense of realism throughout the story and an authentic depiction of Callie s vulnerability which I appreciated, and the premise was still pretty cool.

    22. It was super cute and super relatable All the friend troubles and fights every teen girl ha had an experience with that Callie is self conscious and that makes her character vulnerable I thought the atmosphere of the book was super cute and I just loved the premise of it Though predictable at times I still felt everything the characters were going through.

    23. Loved this book The main character is funny and quirky, you can identify with her right away It s a great book for kids I will definitely be sharing it with my students

    24. I wish I had read this when I was younger I loved the premise of this and thought it was written really well I feel like this covered so many issues lessons that young children should know about I loved the way this was very developed and if I had read this when I was younger then this was would have definitely be a 5 star for me I really like all the characters and the way it was written had me hooked I had to finish this in one go Overall, I really enjoyed this and I m glad I read it

    25. This was such a fun read I love how Callie isn t perfect by any means and learns a lot about herself and how her reactions affect other people during the course of the book This book is thoughtful about learning to really listen to others and getting to know each person s story and motivations If you enjoy this read, too, I suggest reading Jenny s other MG books, THE CHARMING LIFE OF IZZY MALONE and THE WONDROUS WORLD OF VIOLET BARNABY

    26. Pretty good book If I do say so myself Wouldn t it be fun to read people s thoughts But it might be freaky and get you in trouble Like what was happening with Callie Callie is in middle school and Dr tells her she Needs glasses but their in back order So the Dr gives Callie a temporary pair when she wears them she can read people s thoughts

    27. This is another book that I read a long time ago whose lessons still stick with me I loved Callie s character She was awkward, cute and still learning about the world I could really relate with her, and I absolutely adored how she grew throughout the story and thinking over everything she saw with thought.It was a very heart warming book and I grew to love the main character
