Cinder by Marissa Meyer
The story follows Cinder, a cyborg teenage girl struggling to survive in the world. It follows an almost Cinderella story the way she deals with her mother and evil step sister. But there are a lot of changes.
She has one sister who is loving to her, until she catches the plague, a deadly disease that is killing hundreds of thousands of people all over the world.
Her step mom, blaming Cinder for her sisters certain death, offers her to the government for testing for the cure to the disease.
There Cinder learns some pretty crazy things about herself and finds herself getting closer to the prince, who is kind and strong when he is around her. But she has secrets that would make him hate her if he knew what they were.
This story is about her struggle to survive the world, the coming war, and a crush on the prince that may or may not get her killed.
All in all this was a good read, but I don't think it was good enough for me to read the next book in the series. Despite the fact that I want to know what happens, it doesn't really fit my likes at the moment.
So this book gets a 3 out of 5 star rating and my stamp of approval. If you need a good read, this is a book that would be good to give a try.
