Teen Review: Cinder by Merissa Meyer

Hi! My name is Lucy and I’m in middle school at Winchester Thurston School. Besides reading I like to play tennis, dance, and draw. I love cats, I’m very creative and do a lot of crafts with my hands. I am an avid reader and read about 20-100 pages a day. If you like what I read, you probably like Harry Potter.

Cinder by Merissa Meyer

Cinder is the first of the Lunar Chronicles, a series by Merissa Meyer. There is known to be at least four books in this series. The second book is expected to come out February 5th of 2013. So if you’re a person who has trouble waiting for the next book, put Cinder on your list of books-to-read.

Linh Cinder is a cyborg. She has a mysterious past and runs a mechanics shop in the market of New Beijing. She makes all the money for her legal guardian (her stepmother) Adris and her two step sisters, Peony and Pearl. A deadly and dangerous plague has decreased the population catching the Emperor in its grasps. Lunar people from the moon watch to see when they will make their next move. When her life becomes intertwined with 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.

This book will be a very good read to young-adult girls especially in middle school. The genre of the book is science-fiction. It is a very fast read and I would give it 4 ½ stars out of 5. In this book of strategy, tricks, disease, and lies, a cyborg can find out who she really is.
