Details from Goodreads:
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....
“I have a glitch, too. Sometimes I forget that I’m not human. I don’t think that happens to most androids.”Wow, All I'm saying is, you have to freaking read this before reading the first book Cinder
I dunno why Marissa Meyer didnt put this as a prologue of her debut. Surely I'll enjoy more reading that book if I read this first.
It have the full description of what Cinder really looks like (You dint have to wait reading 200 pages to get the full idea) and I love how Pearl, one of Cinders stepsister make in this book as not that bad person. Also Cinders first experience of being a part cyborg -the own Google search in her head, adjustment of her hearing and all is totally cool. I like how authors make the readers part of their new world. Especially how it feels like. That's why I really enjoy this short prequel. win, win.
