It's the story of the Wicked Witch of the West...as publisher's weekly says..."With a husky voice and a gentle, dramatic manner that will call to mind the image of a patient grandfather reading to an excited gaggle of children, McDonough leisurely narrates this fantastical tale of good and evil, of choice and responsibility. In Maguire's Oz, Elphaba, better known as the Wicked Witch of the West, is not wicked; nor is she a formally schooled witch. Instead, she's an insecure, unfortunately green Munchkinlander who's willing to take radical steps to unseat the tyrannical Wizard of Oz. Using an appropriately brusque voice for the always blunt Elphaba, McDonough relates her tumultuous childhood (spent with an alcoholic mother and a minister father) and eye-opening school years (when she befriends her roommate, Glinda)."

"Wicked" has quickly become one of my favorite books...once you finish, check out its sequel "Son of a Witch." Hehe.

I wish I could get tickets to the musical here...but the soundtrack is so great...I love it.

Also check out "Confessions of a Wicked Step-sister", retelling the Cinderella story from one of the two step-sisters' points of view.

I'll bet you WOULD love it! Here's a cut and paste from another reply...
