Marissa Meyer's 2012 YA novel Cinder is the first book in her Lunar Chronicles series and a futuristic twist on Cinderella. Our POPSUGAR Smart Living editor Emily Co is a fan. She describes the plot: "Think a snarky cyborg Cinderella called Cinder who makes her living as a mechanic. Throughout her struggles, she keeps her cool, which is a herculean task given that she has to deal with a mysterious plague that's wiping out the population and a stepmother who hates her guts."
