Cinderella: Ninja Warrior by Maureen McGowan

Name of Publisher: Silver Dolphin Books

Published: 4/1/11

Age group:10-13

In this fast-paced story full of adventure and romance, Cinderella is more than just a servant girl waiting for her prince--she's a tough, fearless girl who is capable of taking charge of a dangerous situation. 

Seeking to escape the clutches of her evil stepmother, Cinderella perfects her ninja skills and magic talents in secret, waiting for the day when she can break free and live happily ever after. In a special twist, readers have the opportunity to make key decisions for Cinderella and decide where she goes next--but no matter the choice; the result is a story unlike any fairy tale you've ever read!

Special Thank You's to: Netgalley for sending me this book.

When I first saw the title of this book, I immediately wanted to read it, hoping for something different other than the normal retelling of Cinderella that I've read before. And I was not disappointed. 

What I thought made this book really stand out was the fact that it let you choose where the character would go. It was a really nice way to let the reader interact, since half of the time they don't get to do that. 

From what I chose to read in this book, I thought the plot was very well developed and thorough, as well as easy to understand. It wasn't more than skin deep, though-I felt as if I didn't know the character as well as I'd like to. 

Otherwise, this book was very delightful to read, and I enjoyed it very much-it was such a nice book that I finished it in a day straight! I would definitely recommend this to someone, and I'm hoping to read more books in the Twisted Tales series by Maureen McGowan sometime.
