Have you ever read a book and wished you could tell the Hero or Heroine what to do? Well, your wish has been granted. In this fun rendition of the classic tale of Cinderella, Maureen McGowen let's you make the decisions at three different points within the story. This version generally follows the traditional version, but adds some twists - wizards are found throughout the kingdom and, as the title implies, Cinderella's picked up some new moves.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and found the fact I could choose what Cinderella would do utterly delightful. I like how Cinderella gains confidence as the story progresses and is stronger than the original Cinderella. The Disney Cheetah Girls' song Cinderella was dancing through my head while I was reading. Although not a big fan of the Disney set, this song just seems extremely appropriate. I gave this one 4 out of 5 stars.
Also available April 1st from Ms. McGowan is Sleeping Beauty: Vampire Slayer (Twisted Tales). Looks like another book to add to my never ending list of books to read. ;)
