Summary: 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 16th 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.
Be sure to checkout this title from your Abilene Public Library and come ready to discuss it with other teens on Wednesday, Apr. 17 at 4:00PM.
