Overview

Fairy Tale Survival Rule #32: If you find yourself at the mercy of a wicked witch, sing a romantic ballad and wait for your Prince Charming to save the day.

Yeah, no thanks. Dorthea is completely princed out. Sure being the crown princess of Emerald has its perks--like Glenda Original ball gowns and Hans Christian Louboutin heels. But a forced marriage to the not-so-charming prince Kato is so not what Dorthea had in mind for her enchanted future.

Talk about unhappily ever after.

Trying to fix her prince problem by wishing on a (cursed) star royally backfires, leaving the kingdom in chaos and her parents stuck in some place called "Kansas." Now it's up to Dorthea and her pixed off prince to find the mysterious Wizard of Oz and undo the curse...before it releases the wickedest witch of all and spells The End for the world of Story.

Princess Dorthea (aka Dot) has grown up confined to the Emerald Palace under the threat of a family curse. Desperate to explore the outside world, Dot makes a naïve wish that upends the storybook kingdoms, allowing the evil Gray Witch to seize power and forcing the princess to flee her home—in her magical Hans Christian Louboutin silver and ruby slippers—with help from chimera Prince Kato and servant girl Rexi. Schow’s (Finished Being Fat) mishmash of fairy-tale settings, characters, and plot devices centers around her odd royal reworking of Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz; entitled Dot and her pun-laden narration (“Mother of Grimm!”) wear thin quickly. While the chapter titles (“Princess Bridezilla”) and epigraphs (“ ‘If it looks too good to be true, it probably is.’—Gretel from Candy Kills: A True Story”) are creative and relevant to each chapter’s plot, the story itself—which includes Dot dealing with a spell to undo, missing parents, multiple witches and wizards, budding romance, and her transformation into a fire-wielding priestess—is overly convoluted. Ages 12–up. Agent: Michelle Witte, Mansion Street Literary. (June)
