Then comes the other girl from Kansas – Amy Gumm. Her character is spot on. She’s courageous, and loving, and smart, and I really enjoyed her. Amy lands in Oz in a similar way Dorothy did – carried by a tornado – but in a trailer instead of a house, and with a pet rat instead of a dog. I adored these little touches that reflected the original story, and they continued throughout. The rebellion is quick to recruit Amy to their cause, believing she fell out of the sky for a reason. Dorothy must die, and the Order believes Amy is the one to kill her.
I thought the book was fantastic. I had no idea where the story was going and I had no idea who to trust. Every twist and turn was super exciting, building to a powerful finish that left me desperate for more.
