Meyer, Marissa. Cinder. Feiwell and Friends, 2012.

From Goodreads: "Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future."

What can I say? It's like the Cinderella story, except she's a cyborg. And people live on the moon. And there's a horrible disease with no cure that's killing lots of people. This book was a good read and an intense one. When you check it out, make sure you have time cleared in your schedule, because you will not want to put this one down.
