(TBR) Cinder by Marissa Meyer about a a cyborg named Cinder who is looked at as a burden by her stepmother. Even though society views her as a technical malfunction, being a cyborg has allowed her to have some incredible abilities, abilities which has caught the attention of the prince. When Cinder’s stepmother blames her for getting her sick with the plague she volunteers her daughter to scientists, which is considered a death sentence. Will Cinder survive or even greater lead scientists to a profound revelation?
This book is a unique take on the classic Cinderella and is a great story for those that like a little futuristic science fiction fairy tale. I would also recommend it to children 11 and older due to some of the difficult language and concepts that are a little far out. I would also recommend it to those who enjoy a positive and touch female role-model as Cinder is sure to not disappoint. This is also the first and a series.
