Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Monday, Apr 21, 2014 at 7:29pm

This book is amazing! Dorothy Must Die is full of adventure, magic, evil and good! But up is down and down is up, the good are wicked and the wicked are good, and nobody can be trusted. Dorothy is corrupt and Oz is dying. All the magic is disappearing, all hope is fading away... until Amy Gumm arrives.

This story is about a girl named Amy Gumm. In the real world she is a nobody, until she is whisked away to the magical land of Oz. The fairy tale Oz is gone. It is now full of massive craters, and the magic is slowly disappearing. Stolen. By wicked people. But who is wicked? Amy must save Oz. She might be their last hope.

One mission. One goal. One objective.

Dorothy Must Die.

The Edge of Falling by Rebecca Serle (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Thursday, Apr 17, 2014 at 8:33pm

Caggie never wanted to be known as a hero, but she has become known as one after she supposedly stopped a classmate from jumping off the roof. Just a few months before this incident, she lost her own younger sister. Now, all Caggie wants is to be left alone, but when a mysterious boy named Astor shows up, she begins to open up. Soon Caggie realizes that Astor's past may be even darker than hers.

The Edge of Falling definitely kept me on the edge of my seat wondering what would happen next, but I didn't find myself loving the book as much as I hoped I would. The book felt a bit too slow at times, and I found myself dozing off at times. I think fans of Pretty Little Liars would enjoy a mystery like this. Overall, this was an interesting book and I couldn't put it down at times.
