Product Description


Praise for How to Rock Braces and Glasses:

"As Haston, in her first YA novel, traces Kasey's painful tumble down the popularity hill, she offers some clever dialogue and important life lessons..."

"Written for middle school girls, readers will relate to the obstacles Kacey overcomes. The message of being true to yourself is strong throughout..."―Library Media Connection

"Embrace the brace! How to Rock Braces and Glasses should be renamed How To Rock Your First Novel. Hilarious and heartfelt. I ah-dored it."―Lisi Harrison, author of the #1 bestselling CLIQUE series (and former 4 year braces-wearer and current glasses rocker)

About the Author

HASH(0xb46c8888) out of 5 stars High four stars - Title alone earns one star! Dec 5 2011
By Maggie Knapp - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Fast and fun - filled with brand names and cute clothes. Story of 8th grade queen bee Kacey Simon, who gets to experience life on the other side of the tracks, with glasses and a "lithp" due to dental appliances. Lots of pop culture and music references. The banter is amazingly sophisticated and self-aware for 8th graders. Flighty fun, and the best title I've come across in a while. Way to rock a first book, Ms. Haston.

I loved this book. I love it because I love to sing and I wish there were more moments were Kacey a d Zander do a cute duet together.
The first time I read this book, I thought to myself: "Oh great. Another one of THESE stories" but it was nothing I expected. I almost broke into tears and I didn't want to put it down!! I loved it and I hope to be a great authof just like you :)

HASH(0xb46c8da4) out of 5 stars HOW TO ROCK braces and glasses Dec 8 2012
By Andrea Teran Chavez - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I really liked this book because it was a story about a girl who was popular, went to the bottom of the social chain, then came back up again where she said she belonged.I didn't really think was a story on HOW TO ROCK them but mostly on her life on how she gets them, deals with them, and gets rid of them.

This book delighted me for popular people and the mean girls at school never seem to care who they step on to push to the top. I think in the end she gets what she deserves. The main reason I chose this book was because I have braces and glasses. I enjoyed it highly. I think most teens will, too.
HASH(0xb46c899c) out of 5 stars so much fun! Feb. 25 2013
By JennRenee - Published on
Format: Paperback
the cover is what really caught my attention. I love the cover, it is so much fun, so bright and doodley. I figured it must be a fun book. I picked up the audio and gave it a go. It was a very fun book. I love the character, she is such a typical teenager going through all the emotions and insecurities that we all seem to go though at 13 years. I loved the story, and the writing was awesome, I was laughing from start to finish.

Kacey is the typical 13 year old who happens to be very popular. She is very frank and comes off a little too rough with her words but no one ever seems to point it out to her. They act like they love her when truthfully they just want to be her or accepted by her for the sake of their place in the junior high food chain. Kacey is not only popular, she loves to be in front of a crowd or camera. She is in drama and just won herself the lead and she also has a place in the school morning show giving advice. She loves her life. Then... it all falls apart because of an eye infection and a freak accident she ends up in glasses and braces with a lisp and everyone drops her. Yes its very shallow, but more true than we ever wanted to admit at that age. Kacey has a plan to be on top again. It starts with an ex friend and a new guy. Hanging out with people she doesn't particularly like can be dangerous.. especially when you find, they aren't so bad after all.

This book was just fun. I think had a few blurry eyed moments too but I am a softy. What I found to be so fun about this book was the humor and the characters, what I found to be a great read in this book was the truth that is seen by this particular age group and the truth that we see as an adult looking back. I remember these sort of days from junior high.. although I never knew any very cute very talented boys that had their own band... I knew lots of man girls, fake friends, cute boys, and those few that were honest and didn't give a poo about what others thought. This book had them all too.

Kacey is very superficial in the beginning. She likes the fame, the popularity, and everything that comes with it. Who wouldn't. What she found was that all she cherished could be gone in a flash and she would be at the mercy of all those she felt inferior before. Kacey never meant to be a mean girl. She had no clue that her true and honest remarks were mean. She thought she was helping those around her come to the truth and better themselves. When she needed friends the most, her friends ditched her and an old friend resurfaces and rescues her from the pit of geekdom. What I liked about Kacey is that she did learn, she did grow, and even though it took a big fall to get there, she became a better friend and person (without losing her wittiness)The stars of the book for me though were Zander and Paige. Zander, the skinny jean rocker boy... is so sweet. He is cool and reserved and he is exactly what you see. He likes Kacey for who she is and the glasses and braces.. no big deal. Paige, the old friend, is just smart! She doesn't care what anyone else thinks of her. She is determined to make a difference starting with the school and she is true to herself. These two characters really made the book for me.

The writing is easy going, flows well, great pace, and very witty. The story is cliché but cute and still it's own. The characters rock the book for sure. Quick and easy read to sit down with just to have some fun.
