Just like in the fairy tale Cinderella, Calliope Meadow Anderson (“Callie”) does not seem to fit in. Callie is about to start middle school and is nervous about once again being teased about her appearance and worse yet, she’s told that she needs to get glasses. However, she does not receive just any ordinary glasses; her strange looking glasses actually possess the power of reading other’s thoughts. Callie begins to wear these glasses to get an inside look on what people are actually thinking. What she soon finds out however, is that this power is not as great as it may seem.
