Teaser Tuesdays: Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB @ Should Be Reading.

My teaser:
"Are you alive?" Kai said, pushing her mussed hair back from her forehead. His fingers felt hot and clammy against her skin before she realized that she was the one who was feverish.
Which shouldn't have been possible. She couldn't blush, couldn't have a fever. Couldn't overheat.
What had the doctor done to her?

~Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Paperback, 387 pages
Published January 5th 2012 by Puffin
Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, the ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl...

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. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future.
