My book talks are coming at you from a librarian, not a reviewer. You won't find me talking about style or craft, why I think this could've been better or what worked or didn't work. I only do book talks on books I liked and want other people to know about. So if it's here I probably think it won't injure your brain if you read it.
Oz is not the place Amy thought it would be, and Dorothy is not the girl everyone knows from the stories. Magic has made her greedy, and the former Kansas farm girl has destroyed Oz in order to mine magic, enslaving the munchkins and monkeys. Glinda the Good Witch is anything but, the Tin Man a horrifying mechanical solider, the Scarecrow a mad scientist, and the Lion a true predator.
With everything turned on its head, Amy learns that the Order of the Wicked are actually the good guys in this new Oz - and they want to kill Dorothy, which only another girl from Kansas can do. With the differences between good and bad more than a little fuzzy, Amy has to decide which side she's on, and how far she's willing to go to join them.
