Synopsis:


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!
My Thoughts:

This was an interesting take on the Cinderella fairy tale.  It was very funny, original and a quick read.
Although I have to say I wasn't a big fan of the 'choose your own adventure'.  When I initially picked this book up, I didn't realize that's what it was.  While I enjoyed the story, and how it played out - I probably wouldn't pick up the remainder of the series because of that fact.  The also gave my e-reader some issues, it kept freezing up.  I ended up having to read it at the computer.

The characters were well written and had great chemistry.  I particularly liked the evil stepmother and the stepsisters.  They were quite awful to Cinderella, which forced her to learn magic in secret.  This really helped Cinderella become who she was meant to be.  

I would recommended this to anyone who enjoys a YA romance or a YA paranormal.
