Product Details


“This might be my favorite Virginia Kantra book! Perfectly emotionally pitched and delicately fierce, I don’t know how Kantra manages to capture the ‘looking for home inside yourself’ spirit of Wizard of Oz in such a contemporary way, but she does. I loved it!”—Sonali Dev, USA Today bestselling author of The Vibrant Years

“In this vivid reimagining of Dorothy’s journey to the Emerald City, Kantra serves up a fresh, empowering tale of a young American in Dublin—out of her comfort zone and off on a quest to rebuild her life after a tornado of humiliation and heartbreak. The Fairytale Life of Dorothy Gale is a poignant novel about recovery from the deepest wounds, the true meaning of home, and the delicious satisfaction of regaining control of one’s own story.”—Amy Poeppel, award-winning author of The Sweet Spot

“Virginia Kantra excels at bringing fresh life to American classic heroines. Fans of Dorothy and her journey will adore the new Dee!”—New York Times bestselling author KJ Dell’Antonia

“Virginia Kantra takes on another beloved classic, bringing The Wizard of Oz into modern times and putting her own charming twist on it. Dee is a delightful heroine, and it’s immensely satisfying to watch her make friends and rebuild her life after public humiliation destroyed her. The Dublin setting and the swoony-yet-surprising love story are the icing on the cake of this lovely homage to a classic.”—Kerry Winfrey, author of Faking Christmas

“Both deliciously escapist and emotionally honest, this book is a rare gem. Kantra is a deft, wise writer at the top of her game.”—Barbara O’Neal, author of The Starfish Sisters
