Cheryl Miller reading the book named Cinder.

Cinderella was my favorite fairytale when I was growing up, and this book is a fantastic science fiction twist on the Cinderella fairytale.  The book is set in the future where a deadly plague is destroying the population of earth.  Our main character, Cinder, is a cyborg – part human, part machine.  Because she is a cyborg, she’s not considered as good as a real humans.  Her step mother hates her, of course, and tries to come up with ways to get rid of her.  But, then Cinder meets prince Kai and finds herself in the middle of an intergalactic struggle in which she will need to uncover secrets from her mysterious past in order to protect the world’s future. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl – one cyborg girl – named Cinder.
