This week at Pizza & Pages, the Franklin teens discussed Cinderby Marissa Meyer. Their average review was 4 stars out of 5. Cinder is the first book in the Lunar Chronicles, featuring a main character who is a cyborg and a mechanic. Its sci-fi element is sure to make this Cinderella-ish tale more appealing to guy readers–as well as gals–than the traditional fairy tale. Each book in the Lunar Chronicles will feature a different fairy tale character. Book two is already out and is titled Scarlet— any guesses on who our main character represents in this book?
