TY Book Recommendations 11

Sofia McConnell has read Gregory Maguire's Wicked for her Transition Year Extended Essay, and thinks it is 'brilliant':

"This tells the story tells of the life of the Wizard of Oz’s Wicked Witch of the West from her point of view. The book is full of bitterness, grief and wildly imaginative sections that take you completely out of this world and in to that one. I like this book because it is so imaginative: you live the witch’s life and get a completely different perspective on the whole story. I suggest that if you are to read this book (which you definitely should) then you should also read The Wizard of Oz. I highly recommend this book to people of ages 13 to 90 who wouldn't be worried by such an imagination. It was a really enjoyable book and I loved it!"
