Synopsis: The Little Android is a retelling of The Little Mermaid, set in the world of The Lunar Chronicles by New York Times-bestselling author Marissa Meyer.

When android Mech6.0, saves the life of a handsome hardware engineer, her body is destroyed and her mechanics discover a glitch in her programing. Androids are not meant to develop unpractical reasoning or near-emotional responses… let alone fall in love.


Review: Unlike the other short stories in Marissa Meyer's The Lunar Chronicles, this story doesn't give us a new glimpse into a character we already know's life. I liked seeing a different part of the world. The story followed the original The Little Mermaid in a really cool way substituting the mermaid for an android. This is no Disney story. 

I liked seeing references to the world that we already know and love, but I wanted a stronger connection to the main story. Maybe these characters will appear later in the series. 

I give this short story a 4/5. I really enjoyed it and highly suggest it to anyone who has read the main books in the series. It is even free to read on wattpad.
