http://breakingthespine.blogspot.ch/ where we showcase a book we are looking forward to that hasn’t come out yet.
This week I am choosing Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige. First off I was in the Wizard of Oz and Christmas in Oz during high school and I lovelovelove anything Wizard of Oz, including Wicked… I always thought Dorothy was annoying so this plays into things I enjoy well.
It is going to be over 400 pages and will be published by HarperCollins April 1st 2014.
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 trained to fight.
