CinderCinder by Marissa Meyer
Hardcover, $17.99 » | Ebook, $9.99 »

Meyer's debut novel may be inspired by Cinderella, and it may involve a prince and a ball, but that's about where the similarity ends. Cinder, our cyborg heroine, is a mechanic in post-World War IV New Beijing. Technology may have advanced enough to give her artificial limbs and a robot for a best friend, but it can't cure the victims of a deadly pandemic sweeping the globe, nor can it save the world from the Moon Queen's tyrannical ambitions. Drawing themes from the classic fairytale, Blade Runner-esque cyberpunk, and Sailor Moon (yes, really), Cinder is a satisfying entry to the YA sci-fi genre, and a promising start to a quartet of novels. —Jennie

Arizona Storytellers
Storytelling Night: Who We Want to Be
7:30PM THURSDAY, JUNE 21

Blue Hound Kitchen and Cocktails
Hotel Palomar at CityScape | 2 E. Jefferson St, Phoenix 85004 (map)
Admission: $10, $5 for students. Purchase here »

Tonight's theme is "Who We Want to Be"—stories of living up to the people we think we want to be, and stories of letting go of the people we used to be. The Arizona Storytellers Project celebrates the moments that define us, or who we think we want to be—whether that's superhero at age six, a rockstar at thirteen, the president at seventeen, or even just a better person at any age. And here, also, are the stories of relinquishing personality traits, goals, and fashion choices as we outgrow them; the moments where we decide to become something new at age 21, something different at age 35, or something unexpected at age 64.
