Waiting On Wednesday (1)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming books whose releases are being eagerly awaited. Bloggers are encouraged to join in and post about the book they're looking forward to reading. Here is mine: 

CINDER, by Marissa Meyer.
Expected publication: January 3rd 2012 by Feiwel & Friends.

Synopsis: 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, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her 
world’s future. 

I first heard about Cinder when I stumbled upon Marissa Meyer's livejournal and I've been excited about its release ever since. I love reinvented fairy-tales, and the fact that this is book one in a quartet makes it even more exciting.
