Cinderella lives in space and she's a mechanic. This book is cool, and even boys will sit still for it. The twists on a familiar story are just enough to make everyone in the audience sit up and take notice. My favorite part is how the heroine handles the inevitable offer from her galactic prince at the story's end. Like any good Cinderella, she's gracious while showing readers she's got a mind of her own and solid goals she hopes to accomplish.
