    This is the 5th book of the lunar chronicles. I haven't read it yet, but I'm getting it for my birthday. Which, By the way, was on the exact day of the super blood moon: May 26 2021! I didn't get to see the blood moon, but it was my fault. I got the time wrong...Okay, way off topic here. Books! I recommend that you read the first 4 so it will make sense. See ya'll later!

        "Stars Above" is a collection of short stories related to the Lunar Chronicles, which I would recommend reading last in the series, because if you read it before you could get some spoilers. This book answers many questions you may have had while reading the Lunar Chronicles books, including, "How did Cinder get to New Bejing in the first place?" "How did Scarlet end up living with her grandmother?" "How did wolf become wolf?" "Why did Jacin chose to be a guard?" and of course, "Who is going to get married?" All these question and more are answered in the form of 9 short stories by author of the Lunar Chronicles, Marissa Meyer. This book is absolutely essential if you have read the Lunar Chronicles and loved it as much as I did.

              this is the best book in the world because it shows you the different ways someone can be racist and that sometimes you need to see past the outside and look into the inside of a person.

                  Wonderful additions to the already enthralling story of a cyborg/lunar princess discovering her past and acting on her future that she could have never dreamed of!
