Another one of my favorite books of all time!!! Wicked takes the wonderful world of Oz and puts a little spin on it. We only ever hear about this place from Dorothy, or maybe even the Cowardly Lion, the Tin Man, and the Scarecrow. We have only ever heard how evil the Wicked Witch of the West is; however, how wicked is she really? After reading this book, we have a totally different perspective of the witch, or better known as Elphaba as well as the Wizard and the whole land of Oz. We finally get to see and feel what it is like to grow up green! And, the multitude of colorful characters only add to the story. I highly recommend this read and this author!! Maguire is amazing!
