Review quote

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 "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." -- 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 "Paige's world building is intriguing and effectively augments the original world created by L. Frank Baum." -- ALA Booklistshow more

Back cover copy

Once upon a time, there was a girl from Kansas named Dorothy. You might know her as the Girl Who Rode the Cyclone. She ended up in Oz, where she became friends with the Tin Woodman, the Scarecrow, and the Cowardly Lion. But the temptation of magic was too much for her. She let it change her. Her friends became twisted versions of their former selves. The magical land of Oz is now a dark and menacing place. My name is Amy Gumm. Tornadoes must have a thing about girls from Kansas, because I got swept away on one too. I also landed in Oz, where Good is Wicked, Wicked is Good, and the Wicked Witches clued me in to my true calling: Assassin. The only way to stop Dorothy from destroying Oz--and Kansas--is to kill her. And I'm the only one who can do it. But I failed. Others died for my mistakes. Because of me, the portal between the worlds has been opened and Kansas and Oz are both in danger. And if I don't find a way to close it? Dorothy will make sure I never get to go home again.show more
