Glitches by Marissa Meyer
*WARNING: MY REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS IF YOU HAVEN'T READ CINDER!*
Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. In “Glitches,” a short prequel story to Cinder, we see the results of that illness play out, and the emotional toll that takes on Cinder. Something that may, or may not, be a glitch...
Cinder was one of my favorite books of 2012 (my husband was also not impartial to it). When I heard that the author wrote a prequel, I had to read it. Glitches was great. It gave readers an inside glimpse to when Cinder first got to earth. It also let us learn more about her father. He was a gentle and loving person who made Cinder feel like part of the family. Her stepmom used to be a little nicer than what she is in Cinder but she has always been a cold person. I think I finished this very short story in about ten minutes. It was definitely worth the 99 cents I paid for it. I learned a lot more details of Cinder's back story. Now I'm even more excited for Scarlet to be released.
I give Glitches 5/5.
