I was in South Korea when I read "Cinder" this summer and the eastern setting of Bejing, China, felt so real to me. I love the way the author describes the market smells and sounds so it's like you are there. You'll love the way this author has taken the Cinderella story into the future, though I hope it's really not our future!

Cinder, a gifted mechanic and a cyborg with a mysterious past, is blamed by her stepmother for her stepsister's illness while a deadly plague decimates the population of New Beijing, but when Cinder's life gets intertwined with Prince Kai's, she finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle.
