    Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl.... Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle.

    Story

    I like fluff....But I don't enjoy predictable. This was sweet, lighthearted, but with fun twists and turns. I also appreciated that (unlike some popular YA authors) Marissa Meyer realizes that her readers actually have a brain and don't need to be "talked down to." Thanks for a great new universe!

    The best-selling author of the Bubbles series, Sarah Strohmeyer pens book-club-favorite novels of immense appeal. In Kindred Spirits, four young mothers strike up a friendship at a PTA meeting and soon after form the Ladies’ Society for the Conservation of Martinis. A twist of fate forces them apart, but when one of them dies, the women discover how much they mean to each other.

    Story

    I usually love Sarah Strohmeyer, and have a couple of her books that I have reread several times. When I pick up her books, I am not looking for anything profound, just a little fun. I had to WADE THROUGH this. It was the longest nine hours of my life. I really only finished it because I was sick and couldn't sleep one night. The plot was uninteresting, the characters not lovable and undeveloped. This is not Bubbles, this is not Cinderella. Slow and boring. Sorry Sarah.
