Rating 10/10

Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Page is an intriguing page turner that will ensure to keep one on edge. The title sort of tells all but its way more than that. In this epic retelling of our favorite place, Oz, comes a new girl from Kansas named Amy Gumm. She is carried off into Oz by a tornado. One would think, “This is going to be the same exact story as Wizard of Oz”. Wrong. Dorothy was corrupted by Oz magic and its up to Amy to undo what Dorothy had done. Meaning that she has to remove the Tin Man’s heart, steal the Scarecrow’s brain, take the Lion’s courage, then and only then, Dorothy must DIE. Amy must be prepped in all things Wicked from training fighting styles to dinner etiquette and lady like mannerisms.

When I saw this at the library on the book self I was intrigued by the mysterious title. Since I am a bibliophile (someone who really loves books) I always love to go on adventures with books. This book was an incredible trip. Just because it’s a young adult book doesn’t mean only for that age window. I would recommend it as a children’s book and for any adult who loves everything and anything that is related to Oz.

Paige, Danielle. Dorothy Must Die. (Dorothy Must Die Series, #1.). Harper, an Imprint of HarperCollinsPublishers, 2014.
