Publishers Description: 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 Earths fate hinges on one girl. . . . Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. Shes a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsisters illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kais, 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 worlds future. Marissa Meyer on Cinder, writing, and leading menWhich of your characters is most like youI wish I could say that Im clever and mechanically-minded like Cinder, but noI cant fix anything. Im much more like Cress, who makes a brief cameo in Cinder and then takes a more starring role in the third book. Shes a romantic and a daydreamer and maybe a little on the na¯ve sidethings that could be said about me tooalthough she does find courage when its needed most. I think wed all like to believe wed have that same inner strength if we ever needed it. Where do you writeI have a home office that Ive decorated with vintage fairy tale treasures that Ive collected (my favorite is a Cinderella cookie jar from the forties) and NaNoWriMo posters, but sometimes writing there starts to feel too much like work. On those days Ill write in bed or take my laptop out for coffee or lunch.If you were stranded on a desert island, which character from Cinder would you want with youCinder, definitely! She has an internet connection in her brain, complete with the ability to send and receive comms (which are similar to e-mails). Wed just have enough time to enjoy some fresh coconut before we were rescued. The next book in the Lunar Chronicles is called Scarlet, and is about Little Red Riding Hood. What is appealing to you most about this character as you work on the bookScarlet is awesomeshes very independent, a bit temperamental, and has an outspokenness that tends to get her in trouble sometimes. She was raised by her grandmother, an ex-military pilot who now owns a small farm in southern France, who not only taught Scarlet how to fly a spaceship and shoot a gun, but also to have a healthy respect and appreciation for nature. I guess thats a lot of things that appeal to me about her, but shes been a really fun character to write! (The two leading men in Scarlet, Wolf and Captain Thorne, arent half bad either.)
