Description-

  • In this third book in the New York Times bestselling Dorothy Must Die series, new girl from Kansas Amy Gumm is caught between her home—and Oz.

    My name is Amy Gumm. Tornadoes must have a thing about girls from Kansas, because—just like Dorothy—I got swept away on one too. I landed in Oz, where Good is Wicked, Wicked is Good, and the Wicked Witches clued me in to my true calling: Assassin.

    The way to stop Dorothy from destroying Oz—and Kansas—is to kill her. And I'm the only one who can do it.

    But I failed. Others died for my mistakes. Because of me, the portal between the worlds has been opened. And if I don't find a way to close it?

    Dorothy will make sure I never get to go home again.

    Now it's up to me to: join the Witches, fight for Oz, save Kansas, and stop Dorothy once and for all.

Reviews-

  • Kirkus

    Stranded in the Other Place (aka Kansas), Amy Gumm goes searching for Dorothy's silver slippers, reputed to be somewhere in her old high school.They are apparently the only way Amy, along with witches Glamora, Mombi, Gert (thought dead but resurrected with some authorial hand-waving), and superhot Nox, can get back to Oz. Although the magical mechanism that maroons them in Kansas is only limply explained, as a plot development, it's a welcome one. Amy reconnects with her mother, who's cleaned up her act after the tornado took her daughter away, as well as with her high school crush, Dustin, and her erstwhile bully, Madison, now the capable and loving mother of baby Dustin Jr. This represents a welcome respite for both readers and Amy from the grim reality of Dorothy's Oz as well as an opportunity for some genuine exploration of emotion. Alas, the idyll in Flat Hill is all too short, and then it's back to Oz for some more mass violence, anguish, romantic yearning, arbitrary magic, and double-crossing. At this point readers may well feel Amy's weariness that the Nome King has been introduced as a new adversary, as it guarantees that seeming victory will give way to more defeat and another volume.L. Frank Baum churned out 14 Oz books (and his successors another 26), but at least each one had a complete story arc, unlike this dreary effort.

  • Kirkus Reviews Praise for the DOROTHY MUST DIE series: "Readers of Baum's books will take special delight in seeing new twists on the old characters, and they will greet the surprise climactic turnabout with the smugness of insiders."
  • Nerdist.com "Dorothy Must Die is kind of the ultimate in girl-powered literature. Here, women and girls are allowed to be anything."
  • School Library Journal "Paige doesn't hold back in this fast-paced action novel. Give this cinematic upper-YA novel to fans of A. G. Howard's Splintered, Frank Beddor's Looking Glass Wars, and TV shows such as Once Upon a Time and Grimm."
  • Publishers Weekly "Paige delivers a solid, intense, and strange narrative that draws deeply on its source material."
  • Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books "Paige is creating a rather brilliantly twisted version of the familiar world of Oz."
  • Huffington Post "For anyone who likes a good story turned on its head, Dorothy Must Die is a must-read."
  • ALA Booklist "Paige's world building is intriguing and effectively augments the original world created by L. Frank Baum."
