A fantastic new twist on the classic tale of Cinderella with a strong female protagonist. A mix of romance, adventure, and self-discovery. This book was a fresh and engrossing read, and I couldn't put it down!

I liked the book way more than I expected! I read it back in 6th grade or so but it seemed way too boring then. The vocabulary was too challenging for me and I couldn't even understand most of the events that were happening as a child. I re-read it and overall, I'd read it again. My favourite parts are where Cinder's step-family resembles the fairytale Cinderella a lot.

This book was absolutely amazing! I loved how the author used a strong, intelligent heroine and the plot was outstanding! Marissa Meyer definitely turned our favourite fairy tales into a wonderful work of art!

A cyberpunk retelling of Cinderella that takes place in New Beijing, post World War IV. While Earth struggles with a seemingly incurable plague and a caste system in which cyborgs are firmly situated at the bottom, while residents of the moon watch for an opportunity to swoop in and take control with the aid of their fae-like powers of glamour. I was surprised at how unique this story felt--less a "retelling," and more an original imagining of the future with Cinderella-esque elements.

“He was the fantasy of every girl in the country. He was so far out of realm, her world, that she should have stopped thinking about him the second the door had closed. Should stop thinking about him immediately. Should never think about him again, except maybe as a client--and her prince.
And yet, the memory of his fingers against her skin refused to fade.”

Cinder is really just Cinderella with a Sci-Fi/Steam punk kind of twist. It involves techy droids, the plauge, future sci-fi, and fairy tales all twisted together for a unique spin!
