Publication Date: April 1st 2014
Publisher: HarperTeen

Available for Pre-Order: Amazon | Barnes & Noble

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 the yellow brick road, though—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. Then and only then—Dorothy must die! (HarperTeen)

Dorothy Must Die??
This Sounds FANTASTIC!


There's also a prequel that will be available on November 12th!

  29. this book sounds like it would be awesome!!!!

  30. What a cool sounding book! The only twist on Oz I know is Gregory Maguire's Wicked and I hope this is a lighter read than that. Given that it's from Harper Teen, I expect to find it compulsively readable as that is usually my reaction to titles from that imprint.


Thanks for stopping by! :)
