Way, way over the rainbow

Novelist Danielle Paige flips the script on the land of Oz in 'Dorothy Must Die.'

Farley Mowat – nature lover,

It’s possible that the old Wicked Witch of the West had a point.

Debut novelist Danielle Paige fantastically flips the fantasy script on the wonderful land of Oz and its denizens in “Dorothy Must Die, the first book in a new young-adult series.

Dorothy Gale, the plucky heroine from the L. Frank Baum works and classic 1939 Judy Garland movie, is now the big heavy, and it’s another girl from Kansas who’s tapped to take out the pigtailed menace and her little dog, too.

Amy Gumm, with her pink hair and knock-off clothing, is a teenager who’s willing to do anything to get out of her trailer-park life in Flat Hill. Though armed with tons of gumption, she’s not liked at school or at home, where her single mom leaves Amy to fend for herself in an oncoming tornado.

It’s a doozy, too, and like the one that took Dorothy on a magical journey decades before, this windy disaster transports Amy to Oz.
