CinderBy: Marissa MeyerBook Talk by Augut F.

The theme of this book is don't judge a book by it's cover. Throughout the whole story, Cinder, the main character, is a cyborg. On the surface people see her as different and inferior to them when in reality Cinder is not just a cyborg, which you shouldn't assume makes you a bad person, but she a genuinely nice and good person.

CharactersCinder: Main Character, skilled mechanic, cyborg, in love with Prince KaiPrince Kai: Prince of the Eastern Commonwealth, soon to be Emperor, wants to follow in his father's footsteps, loves CinderAdri (Cinder's stepmom): hates Cinder, has 2 real daughtersPeony: Cinder's stepsister, doesnt care that she is a cyborg, later dies from the deadly plague.Mysterious Lunar Society's Queen: wants to comtrol Earth starting by marrying Prince Kai, has a neice who could take the crown from her but has dissapeared

The character types are similar to other books because there is a charming prince, a peasant girl, the wicked step mother, and others. Also the plot is sort of similar to Cinderella, for example, there is a prince and peasant who fall in love, an evil stepmother and a royal ball. Although, I think this book was supposed to be similar to Cinderella.

The characters are different because even though they seem to have the same basic sturcture ot other characters, they are unique, Cinder for instance is like Cinderella, except she is a cyborg mechnaic. The plot is different because main "fairy tale" events like a ball, and the love story of the prince and a girl, happen but with a twist, Cinder actually doesn't want to go to the ball for fear the prince will discover her cyborg secret.
