Synopsis

There's a new wicked witch in Oz—and her name is Dorothy. This 125-page digital novella is a fresh and edgy sequel to The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum and the prequel to the sassy new epic adventure Dorothy Must Die. No Place Like Oz, by debut author Danielle Paige, is a compellingly original reimagining of a beloved classic and is perfect for fans of Cinder by Marissa Meyer, Beastly by Alex Flinn, and Wicked by Gregory Maguire.

Dorothy clicked her heels three times and returned to Kansas. The end . . . or was it? Although she's happy to be home with Aunt Em, Dorothy has regretted her decision to leave Oz ever since. So when a mysterious gift arrives at her doorstep on her sixteenth birthday, Dorothy jumps at the chance to return to the glittering city that made her a star.

Setting off for the Emerald City, Dorothy is eager to be reunited with her friends: the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the Cowardly Lion. But she soon discovers that in the time she's been gone, Oz has changed—and Dorothy has, too. This time, the yellow brick road leads her down a very different path. And before her journey is through, Dorothy will find that the line between wicked and good has become so blurred she's not sure which side of it she's on.

    Interesting Insight

    Great to read the story about how Dorthy came to be at the beginning of the series. It's always interesting to see how everyone's back story unfolds.

    Mehh

    I'm not one for YA, but it was okay. Written too simply for my taste, but I had to finish it regardless.

    Dorothy is back!

    At first when I read this book, I was worried it would engrave this image in my mind of Dorothy as an evil, twisted girl. Thankfully, now I simply see two versions of Dorothy. I really enjoyed this book, it gave me a totally new perspective on what could have happened after Dorothy clicked her heels and transported herself back to Kansas. To me, the story didn't really seem finished even after that. The wizard of Oz being one of my favourite tales, I think the book is written in a way that was believable for the kingdom over the rainbow, and I would definitely recommend it!

    Dorothy's a Brat!

    Not the typical book I'd read, that is, a young adult novel heavily angled at a teen girl reader. However the fantasy world of Oz has always piqued my interest when it's been reconstructed, and the title Dorothy Must Die! is a great hook indeed. That said this prequel took some time to hook me, it's as if Dorothy is part of a 1930's remake of "Mean Girls", and she comes of as an unappealing protagonist because of that. I guess that's the point. It picks up when it gets to Oz but still takes it's time getting where it's going. That said the depictions of Oz, it's characters and their associated history was really interesting, and by the end I racing through the pages to see how it would finish. Fortunately the preview chapter of DMD! was instantly more enjoyable, with a more modern setting being realised with just a little more gritty realism, and leaving the reader with the desire to read more of the potential Amy Vs Dorothy match-up. Overall good reading value for the reasonable price. Should be appealing for the target audience, some reservations for other readers.
