Published: September 13, 2012

Enter to win one of two autographed copies of  Jenny Lundquist’s book Seeing Cinderella.

Can Callie’s magic glasses help her see her way to leading lady, or is she destined to stay in the background forever, even with her super freaky magic glasses?

Giveaway begins September 13, 2012, at 12:01 A.M. PST and ends October 11, 2012, at 11:59 P.M. PST.

Reading level: Ages 9 and up

Paperback: 240 pages


Calliope Meadow Anderson wishes her life could be more of a fairy tale—just like the stories she writes. Her best friend, Ellen, is acting weird, she’s terrified to start middle school, and to top things off, she’s found out she needs glasses—hideously large and geeky glasses.

But Callie soon discovers her glasses have a special, magical perk: When she wears them, she can read people’s thoughts. For the first time ever she’s answering all the questions right in math class and gets a glimpse of what goes through people’s minds all day, including what Ellen—and her longtime crush—really think of her.

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—just like she’s done for their entire friendship. Can Callie’s magic glasses help her see her way to leading lady, or is she destined to stay in the background forever, even with her super freaky magic glasses?

Filled with charming characters readers of all ages can relate to, Seeing Cinderella is the story of a girl who learns that sometimes all you need is a little vision correction to see the Cinderella in yourself.

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. Her favorite part of college was spending one semester living in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia, where she drank lots of tea, met some really interesting people, and honed her Yahtzee skills. 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. You can visit Jenny online at www.jennylundquist.com.
