Don't think we're in Kansas anymore
on 11 June 2016
Rosa is a bag lady who lives in New York. When she is involved in an accident her nephew Michael the grocer goes to her home to start to clean it up. He comes upon a pair of ruby slippers worn by Judy Garland in The Wizard of Oz. Other people however would also like the slippers.
I picked this book up as it was something different, something quirky. A bunch of characters are bought together in the story mainly because of the slippers. The story seemed to venture of on a tangent at times and had really nothing to do with the main content, really just fleshing the book out.
Michael and Rosa's story was for me the main reason I finished the book At times this was a struggle. The book for me could have been a bit more magical and less drab, I felt it was missing something.
The book was a very average read about a group of people who think that finding something precious and wanting it is going to make them happy when all it does is cause unhappiness. An ok book for something different.
