Dorothy Must Die 2-Book Box Set : Dorothy Must Die, The Wicked Will Rise
Danielle Paige's New York Times bestselling Dorothy Must Die series is a wickedly dark, high-octane reimagining of L. Frank Baum's The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and chronicles the rise and fall of some of literature's most beloved characters. Catch up on the first two books with this beautiful box set! When a tornado blows through Amy Gumm's trailer park and sweeps her off to Oz, she finds a twisted place completely unlike the one she knows from the books and movie. It turns out that Dorothy Gale ended up going back to Oz and becoming its new ruler-but she's not the sweet girl she used to be. Now Good is Wicked, Wicked is Good, and even the Road of Yellow Brick is crumbling. Amy has been recruited by the former Wicked Witches and Wizards for one mission: to kill Dorothy, and save Oz.

Praise for the DOROTHY MUST DIE series: "Readers of Baum's books will take special delight in seeing new twists on the old characters, and they will greet the surprise climactic turnabout with the smugness of insiders." -- Kirkus Reviews "Dorothy Must Die is kind of the ultimate in girl-powered literature. Here, women and girls are allowed to be anything." -- Nerdist.com "Gone are the days of rainbows, Lollipop Guilds and pretty much anything to sing about in a major key. For those willing to go on a quest with a heroine more attuned to our times than the Dust Bowl era, there's no place like it." -- USA Today "Paige doesn't hold back in this fast-paced action novel. Give this cinematic upper-YA novel to fans of A. G. Howard's Splintered, Frank Beddor's Looking Glass Wars, and TV shows such as Once Upon a Time and Grimm." -- School Library Journal "Paige delivers a solid, intense, and strange narrative that draws deeply on its source material." -- Publishers Weekly "L. Frank Baum would be proud because Danielle Paige really makes Oz-even a modern, dystopian version of it-her own in the enjoyable sequel to Dorothy Must Die." -- USA Today "Paige is creating a rather brilliantly twisted version of the familiar world of Oz." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "Paige has embellished upon the original Wizard of Oz story to create a completely new, even more bizarre Oz and cast of characters. Her world building is fascinating." -- ALA Booklist "For anyone who likes a good story turned on its head, Dorothy Must Die is a must-read." -- Huffington Post "The Wizard of Oz as you've never seen it." -- Teen Vogue
