"Amazingly twisted..."

 

Ridiculously Short Plot

This is two years after Dorothy's first visit to Oz and she returns with her Aunt Em and Uncle Henry by way of the ruby slippers gifted to her on her 16th birthday by G.  She meets up with her old friends: the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, & the Lion and finds out that Oz has changed.  She meets up with Princess Ozma and desires to have what she has.  This is a story of how Dorothy became evil.

Recommendations

I read Dorothy Must Die first and this book second.  Although you don't need to read this book first, I recommend that you do so as this book will answer a few questions you might have on Dorothy.

 

Other Thoughts

I loved reading this book because it helped fill a gap between the Dorothy we all know and love to the evil Dorothy.  I also loved that Aunt Em and Uncle Henry get to see Oz but still keep telling Dorothy that they need to go home.
