Waiting on Wednesday – Cinder by Marrissa Meyer

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

 

Cinder by: Marissa Meyer

Release date: January 3, 2011

 Publisher: Feiwel & Friends (sub group of Macmillan)

 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.

 

I’m not one normally for fairy tale retellings in book form.  Movie form is another deal altogether, but there was something about this book that screams READ ME!  Also I love a good Cinderella story.  Add cyborgs and SIGNG ME UP!
