5.0 out of 5 stars excellent sci-fi/fantasy children's book May 1 1997
By A Customer
I'm envious of kids today who can take advantage of the recent explosion of interest in science fiction and fantasy. Back when I was browsing in the children's section of the library (all right, so it wasn't that long ago), I read everything -- which wasn't much -- I could find that vaguely fell into those categories. This book blew all my prior favorites away.
Willo Davis Roberts has that rare gift of telling a great story simply, without pandering or dumbing a book down, yet with all the best parts of an adult thriller -- the main character, struggling to find where she and her telekinetic talents fit in a disbelieving world, must try to separate those she can trust from the people who just want to use her. In her search, she discovers some unlikely allies, including kids "gifted" as herself.
As a kid, I loved this book because I immediately identified with the main character, wishing I had a friend like her. That's how real I found the people of this story. My copy of "The Girl with the Silver Eyes" is pretty battered, but I can't wait to pass it on to my children

5.0 out of 5 stars I read it every year for about 7 years Feb. 20 2003
By Sophie
I have been trying to track down this book as it was my favourite book as a child. (Im now 29) I must have read it at least 7 times.
I think that a lot of kids feel alone and that they are different to other kids. And they are longing to feel that they are special in some way. Kids can relate to Katie. Who shows strength and despite her differences learns who she is and learns to accept her own uniqueness.
I recommend it to anyone, and will definitely read it again when i can find a copy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gosh I feel old! Feb. 3 2003
By A Customer
I remember reading this book years ago... I think I was in 4th or 5th grade. For me it was the kind of book where you checked it out of the library several times to read it more than once. In a word: awesome. I think it's because Katie is portrayed as a smart girl that makes it appealing to a younger female audience... I'd definitely recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Greatest Book Ever!!! Dec 30 2002
By Leleh
Format:School & Library Binding
I read this book when I was in the third grade, and loved it soo much, decided to write a book report on it, which I just found. Part of my book report read as follows:
The main character of The Girl With Silver Eyes is Katie Welker. She was born with silver eyes, just as the title of the book says. She meets a man named Mr. Cooper who she likes until he starts asking too many questions. Katie finds out that she isn't the only child in the world who has silver eyes, and goes out in search of them. But first, Katie needs to find out how to contact them. Because of her wanting to find other people in the world to be her friend, she teaches a valuble trait: Never give up.
Just need to remind you that I wrote this in third grade, but I reccomend this book to everyone, form the ages 7 and up!

5.0 out of 5 stars I read this 13 years ago!! 10 stars Sept. 28 2002
By Kemry
I read this book YEARS ago. And I must say it is one of the BEST books that i've ever read. I remember that it helped me get through a very ackward time in my life. And still does, in small ways. No spoilers here, even though i only read it once more than 12 years ago and still remember every plot twist. Just get the book. Read it. Love it. And if you don't read A wrinkle in time, then read this book again.

In this book the main character, Katie, has some things that are different about her but not everything about her is weird. She has peculiar eyes. They are silver. Katie seems to have no friends that's because the kids at school don't like her because they say "When Katie's around weird stuff goes on". Now all of the kid's don't know that Katie's silver eyes can do things. Katie's eyes can help her move things by thinking about them. But no one knows this. The author Willo Roberts is very talented because his book is wonderful and he puts tons of detail in it and he doesn't seem to miss anything. I personally think that 4th and up can read this. If you can I advise you to get this book and read it!
