Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

Publisher: HarperTeen

Publication Date: April 1st 2014

From Goodreads:

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 blue birds. 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 the yellow brick road, though—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:
Remove the Tin Woodman’s heart.
Steal the Scarecrow’s brain.
Take the Lion’s courage.
Then and only then—Dorothy must die!

Why I Can’t Wait: ASDFGHJKL! Like seriously, I NEED THIS BOOK! I absolutely love The Wizard of Oz and this retelling sounds deliciously evil and amazing! I can’t wait to meet a darker Dorothy and this other girl from Kansas! Plus the cover is pretty spectacular too, minus the Entertainment Weekly stamp still in the corner. And did I see somewhere that the CW is in talks of picking it up? EEP!
