Bryant, Jen Kaleidoscope Eyes, 257 p. Knopf (Random), 2009. Content: G. It’s 1968 and Lyza, during the summer before 7th grade, has a lot to discover. Her older sister has become a peace-loving hippie, Mom left two years ago and Dad has left the girls mostly to fend for themselves. When Lyza’s grandfather dies and leaves a mysterious message for Lyza’s eyes only, she is sure that she is on the path of something big. With the help of her two best friends, she may just have the map to some buried treasure, but that may not be the only secret that Lyza uncovers this summer. I must admit – I am not a fan of pseudo-poetic books, and though this book is arranged to look poetic, I couldn’t find any poetic conventions in it. BUT, I still really enjoyed reading it – more so than Collard’s Double Eagle, which is similar in flavor. I think that students will like Lyza too. MS – ADVISABLE. Cindy, Library Teacher.
