Cinderella: Ninja Warrior by Maureen McGowen is a young adult novel that holds the elements of the classic fairy tale, choose your own adventure and the feel of the classic mash ups that have been coming onto the scene. The story line is familiar, poor Cinderella has an evil stepmother and wants to get away to live happily ever after. In this version there is magic, the evil stepmother is a wizard and magic is a rather normal thing in the world. Cinderella is under spells that keep her confined to the house and doing the evil stepmother's bidding. Somehow after all her work for the relentless trio Cinderella manages to spend time studying how to be a ninja from a book, under the watchful eye of a persistent cat. Oddly enough, the various aspects come together well in a simple but entertaining read.
