What glasses?" — "The ones you were wearing this morning," she replied. — "How did you know?" — "You're quinting," she explained, "and you have little dents on either side of your nose. You took your glasses off less ... more »than an hour ago. Maybe a half hour."
"I don't like wearing glasses," he said.
"Tell me about it," she said. "They're uncomfortable, they fall down your nose if they don't fit right, and they make you look like a dork." She gazed at him curiously. "Trying to change your image?"
Jerry was astounded. Could this girl read his mind?« less
This book was great when I was growing up. It's about accepting who you are as a person instead of the external images people see. Be happy with yourself! Any kid should read this if for the message alone.
