The Teen Tuesday feature is Cinder by Marissa Meyer. Cinder is book one of The Lunar Chronicles and Meyer’s debut. It is a sci-fi/ fairytale mash-up that is as engrossing as it is entertaining. Cinder is an ace mechanic. She can fix anything. She’s also a cyborg and hated for it by her step-mother and two of her stepsisters because cyborgs are second-class citizens. While this is a loose Cinderella retelling, it is also a story of possible war between Earthans and Lunars, of political intrigue and medical warfare.
