Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles #2) - Marissa Meyer8.06

This time, it’s Little Red Riding Hood set in the distant future. And yes, there is a big, bad Wolf.

Cinder, the cyborg mechanic, returns in the second thrilling installment of the New York Times-bestselling Lunar Chronicles. She’s trying to break out of prison — even though she’ll be the Commonwealth’s most wanted fugitive if she does.

Halfway around the world, Scarlet Benoit’s grandmother is missing. It turns out there are many things Scarlet doesn't know about her grandmother, or the grave danger she has lived in her whole life. When Scarlet encounters Wolf, a street fighter who may have information as to her grandmother's whereabouts, she is loath to trust this stranger, but is inexplicably drawn to him, and he to her. As Scarlet and Wolf unravel one mystery, they encounter another when they meet Cinder. Now, all of them must stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen Levana.
