Shusterman, Neal The Eyes of Kid Midas, 148. Simon & Schuster, 1992, 2009. Language - PG (11 swears, 0 "f"), Sexual Content - G; Violence - G; Kevin is the awkward, glasses-wearing kid that always gets made fun of, and the field trip to the Divine Watch, a mountain, is no different. After hearing some stories about the Divine Watch, Kevin and his only friend Josh start climbing it. But when they reach the top, Kevin finds a pair of glasses that will change the world as they know it. I think this book is exciting through and through. It always surprised me with what came next and I think it was great. EL, MS - ADVISABLE. Reviewer: CCH
FYI: Originally printed in 1992, the fresh, new cover will draw in a new generation of reader.
