The Fairytale Life of Dorothy Gale

Dee Gale has just arrived at Trinity College in Dublin. Upon registration she is shocked to learn her advisor died in a tragic accident; a house being transported on the road fell on her. Dee (Dorothy) is from Kansas. Her Aunt Em and Uncle Henry raised her and her sister Toni on a farm after their mother passed away. Having completed her undergraduate degree at KU, Dee wandered off the academic brick road when she fell in love with (and was later publicly destroyed by) Grayson Kettering, a  professor in the very same English department where she was supposed to be working on her dissertation. Two years wasted while she focused on Gray instead of herself, Dee was lucky to find this opportunity in a land far away from her troubles. Now Dee must get to work, not only on her education but figuring out what kind of writer she is meant to be. While typing her fingers to the bone to impress a wicked new graduate advisor, Dee also finds fabulous new friends and a completely unexpected romance. This modern retelling of The Wizard of Oz is a delightful, completely original and unputdownable read. Loved every single clever reference connecting Fairytale Life to it’s classic inspiration. I truly did not want it to end! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
