This sci-fi story takes place in the far future. In the future Earth has been through two more World Wars, been unified as a peaceful place, and is neighbors to the powerful alien race, Lunars, who live on the moon. Earth leaders have been trying to negotiate a peace treaty with Lunars.

Cinder is soon intertwined with the outcome of every being on Earth and Luna! Check out this book this summer to live through the adventure of Cinder!
I would recommend this book to every teen! Cinder is an amazing new twist to the fairy tale we all know and love. There is action, romance, and suspense! It is filled with so many new surprises! There is that one big question that haunted me and I didn’t know the answer until the very end of the book. I couldn’t help but constantly wonder what was going to happen next! Because of that I couldn’t stop reading it!
If you liked Divergent or The Hunger Games I recommend this book for you!
