Cinderella as a teenage cyborg? Check out Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Book One
I received this ARC and I can't wait to dig into it. A lot of classic fairy tales are being re-envisioned and written with a modern twist. Cinder, book one of The Lunar Chronicles is a new spin on the old classic Cinderella. Check it out...

Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth's fate hinges on one girl. . . .

Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She's a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister's illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai's, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world's future.

There will be an author event on January 9th as a Facebook/ Twitter party at 7:00 EST.
