Mechanica
Betsy Cornwell
Expected Publication: August 4, 2015
Genre: YA Fairytales, Steampunk
Nicolette’s awful stepsisters call her “Mechanica” to demean her, but the nickname fits: she learned to be an inventor at her mother’s knee. Her mom is gone now, though, and the Steps have pushed her into a life of dreary servitude. When she discovers a secret workshop in the cellar on her sixteenth birthday—and befriends Jules, a tiny magical metal horse—Nicolette starts to imagine a new life for herself. And the timing may be perfect: There’s a technological exposition and a royal ball on the horizon. Determined to invent her own happily-ever-after, Mechanica seeks to wow the prince and eager entrepreneurs alike.
Is this a Cinderella retelling? Is it like Cinder or what? Well, I have not yet read Cinder so I can't compare.

But that cover!

It's not until August 2015! Nooooooooo!

  1. I haven't read many steampunk, the few I have I didn't like that much, so hopefully this will turn it around, but NO SO FAR Into 2015! :(
