Blurb:

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, and I’ve been given a mission:

REMOVE
The Tin Woodman’s heart,

STEAL
The Scarecrow’s brain,

TAKE
The Lion’s courage,

And then—

DOROTHY MUST DIE.

Quote:

Melindra forced me back toward the corner, near where Mombi and Nox stood. “She’s still reacting,” I heard the old which mutter. “Not acting.”
Her words hit me in the gut almost as hard as Melindra did. -Amy Gumm page 214

The Reason Why I Chose This Quote:

Choosing a quote from this book was really hard, because I really love this book. So I just open this book and chose a page and this quote was from this page just stood out to me. When I was reading this book, this quote caused so many feels for me. I was so engraved into this book, by the time I got to the end my heart was wrecked. I can’t wait for the second book The Wicked Will Rise.
