Teen Reviewer Kate read Cinder, by Marissa Meyer, because a friend suggested it. Although she doesn't read a lot of sci-fi, she ended up really loving this futuristic retelling of Cinderella. Cinder is the first in The Lunar Chronicles, a series of sci-fi retellings.
"Cinderella, or Cinder, in this book is half robot. This book was a great way of introducing the world and all the amazing characters--and I found it really interesting how all the characters from (the traditional) Cinderella found their way into this book as brand new characters. Overall, I loved this book and can't wait to read Scarlet, the second book!" --Kate Marsh.
Scarlet, published in 2013, is a retelling of Little Red Riding hood. Cress, a Rapunzel retelling, came out earlier this year, and Winter, a re-imagining of Snow White, is scheduled for an early 2015 publication.
