Dorothy Must Die : 1Young Adults
The New York Times bestselling first book in a dark new series that reimagines the Oz saga, from debut author Danielle Paige. I didn’t ask for any of this. I didn’t ask to be some kind of hero.
But when your whole life gets swept up by a tornado-taking you with it-you have no choice but to go along, you know? Sure, I’ve read the books. I’ve seen the movies. I know the song about the rainbow and the happy little blue birds.
But I never expected Oz to look like this. To be a place where Good Witches can’t be trusted, Wicked Witches may just be the good guys, and winged monkeys can be executed for acts of rebellion. There’s still a road of yellow brick-but even that’s crumbling.
What happened? Dorothy. They say she found a way to come back to Oz. They say she seized power and the power went to her head.
And now no one is safe. My name is Amy Gumm-and I’m the other girl from Kansas. I’ve been recruited by the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked.
I’ve been trained to fight. And I have a mission: Remove the Tin Woodman’s heart. Steal the Scarecrow’s brain.
Take the Lion’s courage. And-Dorothy must die.
