Seventeen-year-old Snow-Soon Lee kicks ass--literally. She teaches at her family-owned martial arts gym, The Academy, and cares more about training to be the next Bruce Lee than hooking up. In fact, Snow's never even been kissed. But when Girls Night rolls around, Snow decides to prove to her friends (and herself) that she's not just some boring tomboy. Impulsively, she ki ...more

Ninja Girl was the most adorable story ever. Seriously, I can't get over how cute it was! I picked this book up because I fell madly in love with Adorkable, this author's first release. And now I've fallen just as hard for her second release, Ninja Girl. So if you adore ya romance that makes you smile, laugh and leaves you feeling oh so happy, then I highly recommend Ninja Girl! And Adorkable too, if you haven't read that one yet.
“Alright, alright,” I shrugged. “You caught me. I’m here for you.

Such a good book. I love that we get to see what happens to one of Adorkable's coolest characters, Ash. I also love that this is a story about another strong, smart female. I love the diversity aspect of the book. I think the dialog is really fun. Really well done! Yay!

After Adorkable I just couldn't wait to read more by Cookie. I think that Ninja Girl was adorable and a quite funny story. Usually there's always a guy who saves a girl and this time it's the other way around.

However, this time was the first time ever, that I asked myself if I was just a bit too old for the story.

3.5 Stars. This was pretty cute. I liked how Snow was the one doing the saving/protecting, even if I thought hiring a teenage girl to be a bodyguard was a little unbelievable. I liked Snow and Ash and their relationship. I thought the rest of the characters were a little underdeveloped, though. And just like in Adorkable, the best friend character brought the story down a bit. Min-Lee was supportive of Snow for the most part, but I thought her not only staying friends with the mean girl that con ...more

What a fun book! Love the female lead, Snow, and of course the male lead is Ash who was one of my favorites from "Adorkable". This YA has a little bit of mystery and drama that adds a nice touch. I really enjoyed this book.

Yea, Girl power! I hope someday all girls will see themselves like Cookie O'Gorman sees Snow. Snow is who she is and does not compromise! The great thing is Ash is who he is, too. This story is way better than Geek to Chic transformation story. Cookie's characters are strong and uncompromising. Ninja Girl is an empowering story with romance, action, and mystery!

I loved Cookie O' Gorman's Adorkable which Is really an adorkable read and when I heard that she's releasing another adorable book featuring Ash as the main lead, I was very eager to read it. I loved Ash and Snow as much as I loved Becks and Spitz from Adorkable. They are both fun characters and complete opposite to each other but we know opposites always attract. I liked the fun concept of this story where the girl protects the boy and not th

This book immediately caught my eye when YA Bound Book Tours notified me about the blog tour. So, I signed up, then went on to Amazon and promptly bought the book!

Although I don't usually read contemporary YA fiction, I was willing to try this one because the plot fascinated me from the get-go! And I was DEFINITELY not disappointed! This novel hooked me in right away, and didn't let go until I had devoured it completely! In fact, I'm now wishing it had been just a bit longer, so I could have rem

A kick ass heroine who is hired to be a bodyguard for a boy who's father is running for Mayor. This book was really good. The most important thing I loved about it is the fact that a a woman can be strong and still be attractive to a guy. The is proven by Ash Stryker. He is first attracted by the heroine Snow-Soon after a dear in which she kissed him. They meet again at his new school at an exhibition that which she performed. From there the story takes off.

Ninja Girl is a young adult contemporary romance by Cookie O'Gorman. Last year, I read Adorkable by Cookie and I absolutely loved it. It was so stinkin' cute. Ninja Girl looked super cute, so I couldn't pass this one up. I didn't even realize that it was set in the same universe as Adorkable until I was about halfway through the book. It's not a sequel or anything, so you don't have to read adorkable first, but if yo

I was so happy when I learnt that Cookie O'Gorman was giving Ash his own book. I really liked Ash in Adorkable, and wanted to read his story. I was even happier when I saw that it had alternating POVs. But I didn't like Ninja Girl as much as I did Adorkable. I loved the concept of a badass female bodyguard, but I didn't particularly connect with Snow or her friends. The death threats seemed kinda silly, and the whole thing was a little too transparent. I liked the second half of the bo

This book was everything I've been I've been waiting for after Adorkable. After a wait that seemed forever long, I'm so happy with how this book turned out. The characters were so relatable, per usual, and I fell in love with all of them. There was mystery and suspense and it totally surprised me. I can't decide weather I love this one or Adorkable more, and that's a huge compliment for this book in itself. I'm so excited to reread this one until Cookie O'Gorman release another fantastic read.

So much love for this book! I fell in love with Cookie O'Gorman's writing and characters in ADORKABLE and couldn't wait to read Ash's story. Ash is a soccer phenom and the nemesis of the main love interest in ADORKABLE. So of course finding out not only is he in NINJA GIRL but we also get his point of view, and I was beyond excited. NINJA GIRL does not disappoint. Told from alternating points of view, we get to meet Snow-Soon Lee, a total bad-ass at martial arts, but not so mu

I adored Ninja Girl. I adored it so much. I thought I might considering I loved Cookie O’Gorman’s Adorkable, but I loved it even more than that book. Ninja Girl was one of those books that made me happy the entire time I was reading it. It was so cute!

Ninja Girl is a book I will want my daughter to read when she’s older because of how Snow’s character was portrayed. It’s how every female character should be portrayed. Snow was physically and mentally strong, and s

Ninja Girl was funny, entertaining and daring at the gender roles swap, but it worked out so well and naturally that we can’t even imagine it any other way. I was thankfully surprised that both main characters were likeable and that, while Ash

I'M SO HAPPY. THAT WAS GREAT AND WONDERFUL.

HONESTLY. I FEEL LIKE THIS WAS KIND OF LIKE A COMBINATION OF MY 2 FAVORITE CONTEMPORARY NOVELS (ON THE FENCE & WELL OBVIOUSLY ADORKABLE) <333333

Snow is one of my favorite female protagonists out in the book world and I literally loved that Ash accepted everything about her - especially the fact that she talked to her Bruce Lee poster - with no questions asked. I want my own Ash and I love how he was chasing after Snow despite her not believing it

As a martial artist, I have been looking far and wide for a book that accurately represents female karate students and lets them shine. This book went above and beyond in that aspect. Actually, this book went above and beyond in a lot of areas.
The story at it's roots seems far-fetched but the writing made it seem believable. Ash and Snow had absolutely perfect chemistry. Most of the characters were people of color. Min and Bae were adorable. The mean girl is named Barbie. Snow doesn't fit the Y

Ninja Girl is such a great young adult read. I fell in love with Snow and Ash. 

The first book I read of Cookies and was her Debut Adorkable. I loved it. The writing was wonderful. With Ninja Girl, I feel she’s gotten even better. This is a YA with a twist. It has everything, honestly. 

Snow isn’t your average run of the mill girl character. She’s strong willed and kicks major butt. Also, I love that she loves Bruce Lee. Ash, is one of those guys, who just has girls falling at his feet. But he’s t

I have to admit, after loving Adorkable, I'm feeling let down by Ninja Girl. Honestly, it feels like every aspect of the plot besides the love story was only half thought out. Mean girls who hate Snow? They feel like a big deal, then just fade out a quarter of the way through the novel. Snow goes back to high school to protect Ash? Seems like it could be a goldmine, yet after the first day, it's hardly mentioned. The bad guys? SOOOOO obvious. I just didn't feel like anything was clearly drawn ou ...more

When I first read Adorkable, I got hooked. So seeing as Ash from Adorkable will be here in Ninja Girl also, of course I got baited to read it. And I am so glad I did.
This book made me feel like I dropped into a multi-cultural world. It was interesting and as weird as it somewhat came out in a few scenes, I just can’t help but enjoy it. It was good.
This book would be perfect for teenagers who love to read fan fictions and Wattpad. Not only does this have a handsome, popular, jock hero – this book

100% YA goodness. Absolutely loved it, from the first page to the last. Ash was totally swoon worthy and Snow kicks major ass. I loved how non threatened Ash was by the fact Snow could take him down with her eyes closed and both hands behind her back. Loved the Becks & Sal cameos. Amazing side characters too. Min, Bae Bae and Koi we’re brilliant and can’t forget Mrs. Lee and all her badassery. A definite five star win for me. *****
