She has a step mother that treats her horribly because of the special mechanical leg and arm that she received as the result of a terrible accident. Cinder doesn't know anything about the accident, her real parents, or why Prince Kai has taken an interest in her. Cinder has to learn to trust her instincts, as well as the people who show her kindness, in order to help save the kingdom and the prince, that she loves.
