Dorothy Must Die is the debut novel from Danielle Paige. This isn’t a traditional take on Oz and Dorothy Gale isn’t a good little girl form Kansas anymore.

We have your first look at chapters 10 to 12 from the hotly anticipated Dorothy Must Die. You can check out chapters one to three on Epic Reads, four to six on MTV News and seven to nine on Just Jared Jr.


"DorothyMustDie"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 bluebirds. 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 a yellow brick road — 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.
