    Thank you!!!

    First book I've read in a long time that has a believable female protagonist who thinks about things other than boys. Amy has a lot on her plate, and as the bad piles up, she just keeps on fighting. Very original retelling of Oz - definitely not the one from the movie! A YA book that does more than grow up, but questions the entire process, as well as the benefits of so-called adulthood. Very readable writing style: fast action and wondrous descriptions. Highly recommended. Enjoy the series

    Refreashed twist on a Classic

    I'm more than pleased with how the book went. The pace, the characters, the mystery... It kept me hooked until the very last page. I've now grown a whole new obsession for the World of Oz and I won't be waiting to read the rest of Amy Gum's adventure.

    So much fun

    This was such a fun read. At first I couldn't really relate to the main character, but being outsiders visiting Oz for the first time together can really attach you to a character. My favourite bit was the goth munchkins. That was seriously an awesome touch. I picked up the next book in the series right away because I had to fund out what was next. Good cliffhanger.

    Dorothy Must Die

    I went back to Oz, in a rather odd way, but thouroughly enjoyed the journey.The title is kind of a spoiler, but this title had shown up enough for me that I was curious, and I wasn't disappointed, so now I need to read the whole series.And to think "Twilight" became a hit ?

    A Disappointing Twist

    I have to say, I was excited to read this. The description was enough to make me want to read, because I love all kinds of otherworldly adventures, with the Wizard of Oz being in my Top Three. However, I feel that it did not live up to the kind of story that it had me expecting. The entire book had strong amounts of teenage angst, plot holes, deus ex machina, and a cast of characters that I didn't find to be memorable. There are many points in the story where the author seems to have written the characters into a hole with no way out, and so the amount of deus ex machina that gets everyone out of anything shows poor plotting, using the world's "magic" as a solution to everything for no reason. Dorothy was perhaps my least favorite character of all, and not in a good way. The characterization was poor, and made it feel like the author hasn't actually done her research into the books or movies of Oz, twisting the original characters in a way that doesn't even fit the "good guy gone bad" villain. As I came to the end of the book, I was not left wanting more-I was left completely frustrated, as the story arc was not completed. It left too many loose ends, and essentially sets you up to be required to buy the next book, which I was not impressed enough with Dorothy Must Die to buy the next book in the series. Disappointing.
