First of all, this book was very captivating, and one of the best books I ever read. The writing was amazing; I have absolutley no words for this book. I would reccomend it to 13-15 year olds, and it does not necessarly have to be fans of the Wizard of Oz. The genre of this book is Fantasy, and it contains magic, fairytales, fiction, romance, and young adult. I asure you, that once you start reading, you will not be able to stop. This story kept me guessing, and I never quite knew what was going to happen next. The characters were described in detail, and I could relate to the characters and laugh and cry with them.
