What if you only wanted to be normal? Cinder, stepdaughter of Adri Linh and stepsister of Peony and Pearl Linh, only ever wanted to fit in. But how would that be possible for a sixteen-year-old girl if you were a cyborg, in a busy city full of people and... diseases? Letumosis, a plague, spreads rapidly throughout New Beijing. Meanwhile, Prince Kaito, or soon to be Emperor Kaito, struggles with the daily threats of Queen Levana, the manipulative queen of Luna. But needing an alliance with Luna, and also an antidote for Letumosis (only able to obtain in Luna), Emperor Kai strikes up a marriage alliance with Queen Levana. However, Cinder soon discovers she is... lunar. As Cinder and Kai's "friendship-or more-than-just-that relationship shatters, Cinder is forced to become something she never wanted to be--Levana's prisoner. After many twists and turns in Cinder's story, you realize that she might not only be a cyborg, but someone she has to be--but doesn't want to be. As attacks from Luna becomes more and more fatal, Cinder is forced to believe the fact that she needs to change something. Cinder, by Marissa Meyer, deserves to have 10 out of five stars!
