Oct 12, Mrs. James rated it really liked it Eyes novels-in-versefavorites. This book would collidoscope to readers who enjoy this historical period and like eyes the book is not difficult to read and could be given to a struggling reader. Because she does not see him for his skin color and treats him as a close friend, her beliefs and actions are contrasted with the responses of the people around her the racial tension is a minor element to the main story line.

Golden Collidoscope "Lyza, there's two sides to a coin, two sides to a ship, and two sides to every story. James, Mercer MS Apr 23, Sean W. When the school showed their preview for this book for the first time before handing out the book, they put the song "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" by eyes Beatles in eyes background, which includes the lyrics "a girl eyes kaleidoscope eyes".
Everyone stared at the screen, wondering what on earth they were singing about. After giving the title of the book, they showed the same trailer again, and I was probably the only one in the room who didn't go, "Ohhhhh! The little nod in the title is probably the kindest thing Kaleidoscope Eyes did for me. That wasn't the only nostalgic allusion included--there were collidoscope many more, and I'm not just talking about a line from a song by Janis Joplin or Jimi Hendrix to open each chapter in an appropriate manner.
The whole book is written like song upon song upon song. I've heard people eyes me that it makes it easier to read, and some even tell me that they don't read it poetically, but honestly, I couldn't bypass it.
The poems gave a rhythm to my head and slowed down what should have been a quick, two hour read, into an exhausting, six day bore.
Must I mention the uneventful collidoscope Well, I won't give any spoilers. Meaning that if I tell anything, it'll probably spoil the fun you may just may have with the book, because the story barely gets anywhere. Also, it's a bit uneven. The story addresses issues of racism fine, and the main character seems to be well aware that eyes and her best friend African-American are frowned upon in the s era they reside in; but the author talks the collidoscope story about a girl who goes on an adventure that seems more like one a boy would go on, without once seeming to be aware of it.
It wasn't until twenty pages in, when the character's name was given, until I realized the protagonist was female, not male, and I stayed confused for the remainder of the novel.
