PRAISE Cinder: A New York Times Bestseller A Indie Next Kids’ Top Ten Title “Debut author Meyer’s brilliance is in sending the story into an entirely new, utterly thrilling dimension . . . it unfolds with the magic of a fairy tale and the breakneck excitement of dystopian fiction. Meyer’s far-future Earth is richly imagined, full of prejudice and intrigue, characters easy to get invested in, and hints of what might await in future books.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review “…Offers a high coolness factor by rewriting Cinderella as a kickass mechanic in a plague-ridden future.” —Kirkus Reviews "The novel is full of ... twists and turns, complex characters, and detailed world-building .... While nearly the entire Cinderella story plays itself out here, Cinder’s unfinished journey, together with Meyer’s vivid sci-fi world, will leave readers anticipating the next installment." — The Horn Book

Excerpts/Q&A "You came." She jumped. Wolf had materialized out of the graffiti and was suddenly beside her, green eyes catching the dusty flickers of the light bulbs. "I'm sorry," he said, shuffling back half a step. "I didn't mean to startle you." Scarlet ignored the apology. In the shadows she could just make out the edge of the tattoo on his arm, that had seemed so unimportant hours before but was now burned into her memory. The one who handed me the poker had a tattoo.... Heat rushed to her face, the rage she'd buried in return for calm practicality rising to the surface. She closed the distance between them and thumped her locked fist into his sternum, ignoring how he towered a full head above her. Her hatred made her feel like she could crush his skull with her bare hands. "Where is she?" Wolf's expression was blank, his hands limp at his sides. "Who?" "My grandmother! What have you done with her?"

What they don’t know is the reason for the family’s desperation: a few towns away, their child is missing. This is the tale of two families—one white, one black— trapped by their own and others’ ignorance, driven to a single, unforgettable encounter. It is a story of North and South, of Jim Crow racism, both subtle and blatant, of guiltless victims, and of surprising tenderness. Tony Abbott is the award-winning author of more than eighty books for young readers, including Firegirl, The Postcard, and the Secrets of Droon series. He lives in Connecticut with his wife and two daughters. tonyabbott.com

“As unsettling as readers will find this dark story, it is no Dantesque vision but rather a tough examination, an almost sociological case study at times, of what happens when a pretty good kid enters a truly bad system. Readers familiar with Dickens's Nicholas Nickleby and Oliver Twist will find obvious parallels here that will deepen their appreciation for Burgess's novel.”— The Horn Book "A powerful and gripping tale . . . Harrowing and intense, and he excels at getting inside the heads and motivations of his many flawed characters.”—Publishers Weekly
