Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine where we spotlight eagerly anticipated releases.

This week I'm waiting on...


by Danielle Paige
Publisher: Harper Teen
Release Date: April 1, 2014

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.
I've been trained to fight.
And I have a mission:
Remove the Tin Woodman's heart.
Steal the Scarecrow's brain.
Take the Lion's courage.
Then and only then—Dorothy must die!

I have to admit, I was never a big fan of the original Oz novels. I prefer Gregory Maguire's novel Wicked, and the musical based on that story. This has the potential to be very interesting. I'm incredibly curious about the details of a world where Dorothy is the villain.

Oh, this sounds like an awesome book! I don't think I've ever read a book related to Oz, so this would be something new for me. I'm definitely going to keep an eye on this one. Thank you for stopping by my WoW!
