It was great! Very nicely balanced!! You can still effortlessly see the original Wizard of Oz story at it’s base, (it’s really cool to look for all the similarities and references, by the way! Some are rather obvious, and others you have to look a bit harder for! I’m sure I STILL didn’t even pick up on them all….all the more reason to read it again ;D) but they’re not so alike that this one suffers because of it. It’s not too predictable (and I love all the added mystery!), you successfully made it your own! You don’t NEED to know the original Wizard of Oz story to understand this one…..and that’s a good thing! All the main characters feel real and distinguished, plus, they’re both likeable and relatable! Always a good combo 😉
