Cinderella is an old and familiar tale giving a new twist by Meyer. Mind controlling aliens, plague and a world on the brink of war. Cinder is a cyborg and a mechanic in New Beijing. She is living with her hateful stepmother and blamed for her stepsister's illness when she meets the prince of the Common Wealth, Kai.

Why I picked up the book: New audio at the library that was getting good buzz from the professional library journals.

Why I finished it: This book is awesome!! I was unprepared for how fun it was and for how upset and excited I was realizing that this is a new series and the next book won't be published until next year. This is a great story with exciting characters for both boys and girls.
