Waiting on Wednesday


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Seeing CinderellaCalliope 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, her parent's marriage is falling apart, and to top things off, she found out she needs hideously large and geeky glasses.

But Callie soon learns they aren't just any glasses—they are magical and let her 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.

As if dealing with these crazy glasses weren't enough, Callie tries out for the lead in her school's production of Cinderella and actually gets the part. Instead, Callie chooses to let Ellen have the lead and be Ellen's understudy—just like she has done for their entire friendship.

Add in a new girl who has something to hide, a secret admirer, a best friend stealer who isn't what she seems, and Callie's year just went from ordinary to extraordinary.

Doesn't this book just seem too cute? I love modern fairytale retellings. Judging by the synopsis, this looks like a really fun read that will have me laughing from start to finish.  



I've seen this one on one of the sites for the authors that are having their books released this year. It looks like a lot of fun. I'd wear ugly glasses if I could read people's minds. Then I could take them off when I was tired of hearing them. Such a great take on Cinderella. Great pick!
