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 bluebirds. 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 yellow brick road - 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.

My Thoughts

What a fantastic & awesome book Dorothy Must Die was for me just wow I can't put it into words how amazing this book was for me I just loved Mrs Paige descriptive writing style it was quite unique for me I never read a book as detailed as this one was it was really refreshing for me I really loved the plot, the world building and loved loved all the characters even the characters who I despised the most who were pure evil they just so creepy scary that they just give me goose bumps just thinking about them yes they are that creepy! I just can gush all day talking about all the characters and this book but I don't want to spoil anything for anybody but I will tell you about my favorite character Amy Gumm the other girl from Kansas who was also sweep in a tornado and landed in the beautiful magical world of Oz will the used to be beautiful magical world of Oz now it just a dark dreary world with almost no magic to the land because you see Dorothy find a way to come back to Oz and the power of magic went to her head and she become pure evil now she controls Oz and she just wants all the magic power for herself alone and she is destroying Oz! Amy was sent to Oz to save it and too destroy Dorothy and the only why she can do that is Remove The Tin Woodman's Heart, Steal The Scarecrow's Brain, and Take The Lion's Courage and only than Dorothy Must Die! and what a long hard journey and mission Amy has she didn't want to do the mission at first but after she has made a lot of hard difficult choices and meet some colorful friends and probably found a love interest on the way she has decided to do the mission and finally save Oz from the evil Dorothy! I really loved and enjoyed Dorothy Must Die that I can't now wait to read more about Amy mission until the next book that comes out which is going to be pure torture because it comes out next year! Well Until Next Time My Friends!
