I love that some of my friends are fellow readers so that we can exchange book recommendations. It is extra special when one of my relatives is a reader, and so I appreciate my sister-in-law lending me her copy of Cinder. It's a book I wouldn't have chosen for myself.
Cinder is a cyborg living in New Beijing in a time of disease and political upheaval. Her stepmother hates her. But does Cinder hold the secret for healing? An interesting twist on Cinderella and science fiction.
There are three other books in the series and while I liked Cinder enough, I'm noticing that I'm not rushing to find the next one. I might borrow the next one if I happen to come across it though.
