Glitches is a novella in The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. It takes place before the events of Cinder. It was released on January 18, 2012.


Linh 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, Peony's illness. In Glitches, a short prequel story to Cinder, we see the results of that illness play out, and the emotional toll that takes on Cinder. Something that may, or may not, be a glitch . . .



"Because she would be stuck with these limbs forever. She would be cyborg forever."

"I have a glitch, too. Sometimes I forget that I’m not human. I don’t think that happens to most androids."

"Nothing makes an android feel more useless than when a human is crying."
