When I was in library school, one of my professors announced that we would have a guest speaker come in and talk to us about...well honestly I don't even remember what he was supposed to talk to us about, but that didn't matter because he bought a bag full of books with him--and nearly all of them were YA, which was strange because it wasn't a YA course. Well my eye gravitated toward this book with a shining red high heel, still in the ARC form. And when he told me it was a cyborg Cinderella story, I knew I had to bring it home. I snatched it up before any of my other classmates got interested and that night I made my boyfriend read it to me. Cinder, just as the guest speaker told me, is a cyborg Cinderella story, but more than that it is a thrilling adventure with a hint of romance and some of the best sci-fi I have encountered in YA fiction.
