Loose Canon: The Wicked Witch of the West
Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West (Wicked Years Series #1)
Once upon a time in the far-off land of Oz, a green girl named Elphaba Thropp is born to a Unionist minister named Frex and his Desperate Housewives -esque wife Melena in Munchkinland. Not your typical fairy tale fare here. Elphaba spends her early years with her alcoholic mother, her mother's lover Turtle Heart , her mother's old nurse Nanny , and her devout father. Her childhood is a rough one, since her green skin makes her a social outcast, and her own family is alternately repulsed by her and scared of her. During this time the Wizard also arrives and takes over Oz. He's a cruel dictator and starts oppressing various ethnic groups and Animals. Melena eventually becomes pregnant again, likely with Turtle Heart's child.

This is the book that started it all! The basis for the smash hit Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, Gregory Maguire's breathtaking New York Times bestseller Wicked views the land of Oz, its inhabitants, its Wizard, and the Emerald City, through a darker and greener not rosier lens. White and purple summer thunderheads mounded around her. Below, the Yellow Brick Road looped back on itself, like a relaxed noose. Though winter storms and the crowbars of agitators had torn up the road, still it led, relentlessly, to the Emerald City.
