  9. Summary • Humans and cyborgs live together in a futuristic city on Earth called New Bejing. In this world, a deadly disease is killing thousands of people and scientists have been unable to find a cure. At the same time, Earth faces the possibility of war with the Lunars, a mysterious group of people living on the Moon. The future of Earth depends on one girl… • Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She is part human and part machine after an accident that nearly killed her. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, hated by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. Her skills as a mechanic help her to meet the handsome Prince Kai and she becomes wrapped up in his problems as the leader of New Bejing. • As she starts to learn about the secrets in her past, she has to make choices to help protect Earth from the treats of disease and war.
