Amy is a 16 year old who lives in Kansas with her mother who is an alcoholic and drug addict. One day when her mother left to go to the bar, Amy was left alone at home (a trailer) when a huge tornado came through her town. The tornado carries her trailer to Oz (just like Dorothy). When she woke up, Pete was there to help her out of her trailer before it fell into a ravine.

She meets Indigo, a munchkin who tells her about how Dorothy took control and is stealing all the magic in Oz for herself which is causing Oz to start dying. Along the way they find Ollie, one of the flying monkeys that cut off his own wings to have freedom from Dorothy.

Amy is "recruited" by the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked and is trained to fight and use magic so that she can kill Dorothy to save Oz.
