by Marissa Meyer


This was a parallel story to the classic Cinderella story. The main character, Cinder, is a droid but keeps it a secret. Her and her step sisters and mother don't get along. She was invited by prince Kai to his ball, but her step family wouldn't allow her to attend. By the end her and Kai end up falling in love, but there are more adventures for them to go on together amid this crazy disease.

I loved it! It kept me on the edge of my seat during the whole book. I especially loved the fact that there wasn't a straight up classic, expect-able love story between Cinder and Kai. And the fact that the story continues throughout the whole book series, and it never dries out. It showed such a strong feminine roll through Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress( the three leading women).

I would totally recommend this book. It is so inspirational and such a good read, even if you aren't the biggest reader. Any teenage girl looking for a good read that displays a strong female role. It really helps to inspire young women to stand up for themselves and show their own true selves no matter what.
