Chris's April 2014 Staff Pick: Who’d ever thought that the Wizard of Oz was a true story. certainly not Amy. But when her Kansas home was taken way by a tornado and landed in a wield land where things were not what they seemed to be. But this story is already taken by Dorothy.

But Dorothy came back and took over. Oz is not what Oz used to be. Now it’s up to Amy to find away to take down Dorothy.

I love books where you love to hate the characters. Dorothy has become such a evil character that you have to hate her, and find out id she dies or not.

— From Chris's Picks


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.
