Cassie finds a pair of glasses during a sleepover. They look a lot like hers, but they have an incredible ability - they allow her to see fairies. She hates to give them back, but convinced they must belong to fellow party-goer, Bianca, she seeks her out. But Bianca says they aren't hers. Cassie keeps looking, and though the fairies largely ignore her, there are some that pop up that seem to want something from her.
I have to say, I wasn't terribly impressed, though I love the premise and the idea that there are multiple magical items that allow you to sense fairies. Maybe I'm just not cut out for reading middle grade stories, because it just felt a bit patronizing. At a few points, Cassie tells others about the glasses, but though no one else can use the glasses, they end up believing Cassie, which I find a little unbelievable, though I suppose it sends a good message. The story was okay, but the end was a bit of a let-down. Overall my impression wasn't great, but you can judge for yourself.
I purchased a copy of this book at the current price. I am voluntarily providing an honest review in which all opinions are fully my own. I am not being compensated in any way.

What it’s about…
Cassie attends a sleep-over where she finds a pair of eyeglasses almost the same as her own pair. These glasses let her see fairies, though! Fairies are all over the place and no one else sees them.
She thinks the glasses must belong to one of the other girls at the party, except no one else claims them. She tries to return them to Bianca, but she doesn’t claim them either. Although they do work out Bianca’s big problem!
Cassie tells her parents what has happened and all about the eyeglasses and fairies. Her parents believe her and trust her to do the right thing.
What will happen when Cassie speaks with the last fairy?
The cover is consistent with what the author has chosen for the series. I think it’s a bit on the bland side. I like the pale fairy dust like background. I think the eyeglasses with fairies showing through them should have been done to look more like a real pair of little girls’ glasses and show glimpses of fairies through them. The glasses on the cover look like men’s glasses and are not realistic looking. The fairies are not fun looking! They need more whimsy.
The storyline is fabulous! I loved it, but I am not a child. I looked at reviews to see if there were many from children, but there were only two, one liked and one didn’t like. So, I’m trying to put myself in a child’s mind to judge this. The concept is really good and I think this would appeal to children, particularly girls. I don’t mean to be a sexist, but it’s about a girl and fairies, so I think it would appeal to girls more.
The characters weren’t developed a lot, but in children’s books, they don’t need to be to tell the story.
The pace was good. It was steady but paused a bit when a child might need to think about some of what was happening.
The tension was consistent throughout the story keeping your attention throughout.
Writing Quality was very good. It talked about good concepts you want children to think about, but didn’t talk over their heads in language too hard for them to understand.
And this is where you STOP if you don’t want to see any SPOILERS…
The good, the bad, and the ugly…and how much it lit up my life… ✰✰✰✰
Cassie finds the glasses and really wants to keep them so she can see the fairies. But she’s honest enough to know she should find the owner. She talks things out with Bianca and though the glasses don’t belong to her, the girls do resolve her itching problem with the glasses. So Bianca is happy.
Cassie talks with her parents about the glasses, the fairies, their colors, and what could go wrong and such. They believe her and trust her to do the right thing. So finally Cassie decides the glasses were meant for her and puts them on to seek the final primary fairy. Wow! That’s a lot to put on a child. I was amazed that her parents believed her at first. Then I realized the author was trying to say something. Of course, her parents would believe her. Why wouldn’t her parents believe her? Obviously, she is a truthful little girl and they have no reason not to believe her as she has given them no cause in the past not to believe her. There is a bond of trust between parents and child here as there should be between all parents and their children. I guess I expected a bit more doubt from the parents. I mean, fairies? Maybe it’s just my own experience with parents or as a parent.
Then Cassie has her interview with the White Fairy and the fairy disappears with the glasses. Cassie is upset. The fairy has taken away the glasses. Cassie thinks that means she won’t be able to see the fairies anymore even though she made the promises to the fairy to always believe in them and always pay attention to them. But Cassie gets her happy ending the next morning when she doesn’t need the fairy glasses to see fairies.
This book addresses things straight on and with the ultimate desirable result. To my adult mind, it seems unrealistic. To a child, it hopefully would seem like a great example of how things should be and how they should behave. I’m just not sure that’s how life works outside a perfect world.
Cassie had no intention of stealing Bianca’s glasses.
The bathroom was all foggy & Cassie put on a set of glasses.
Suddenly she thought she saw a blue fairy. It appeared & then disappeared.
Cassie screamed & ran to Bianca as she had fallen off the jungle gym.
She got checked out & was back in school.
It was a green fairy this time.
& then a white fairy.
I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review. Only an honest one.
A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written elementary or MS age fairy tale book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great elementary or MS age fairy tale movie, animated cartoon, or better yet a mini TV series. To be continued. A very easy rating of 5 stars.

This is the story of Cassie, a new girl at school, who hates wearing glasses... until she grabs a pair of glasses that look just like her own - but with a BIG difference! She can see fairies! I won't say more to ruin the story - you need to read it for yourself!
Ms Sorensen has created a world where fairies make themselves known... how and when they want! What I love about the story is that the characters are so well developed that you feel what they are going through, and you remember what it was like to be that age with your friends! She has given the air of innocence, curiosity, wonder, and just a tinge of fear of the unknown - all wrapped together to immerse you into the tale. We see that Cassie's kind heart brings her to try and help Bianca. It's a story that makes you feel good!
Based on this and the other book I had read in this series, I am definitely looking forward to reading more of these stories when I need an escape!
