J.A. Beard The Emerald City (Osland Trilogy, #1) by J.A. Beard

Genre: YA Urban Fantasy

The Emerald City (Osland Trilogy, #1)

Book Description

In this loose re-imagining of the Wizard of Oz, Kansas teen Gail Dorjee has tried to escape from the pain of her parents' death by retreating into a hard shell of anger and sarcasm.

When her aunt and uncle ship her off to an elite Seattle boarding school, Osland Academy, she spends her first day making enemies, including the school's most powerful clique, the Winged, and their leader, the ruthless Diana.

Social war and the school's uptight teachers are only mild annoyances. Mysterious phone outages, bizarre behavioral blocks, and strange incidents suggest Osland is focused on something much more sinister than education.

Now Gail has to survive at Osland with a pretty pathetic assortment of potential allies: her airhead roommate, a cowardly victim of the Winged, and Diana's cold but handsome boyfriend, Nick.

J.A. Beard (jabeard) | 145 comments RE: Review sites. Yeah, it's more "I'd really love it if you could hit all those spots", but if people can't, totally cool, too.

I just remembered that to leave a review at SM, you need to have downloaded it from there. I have a 100% off coupon for people for that purpose.

Thanks. :)

Midu, I just e-mailed you.

Alana ~ The Book Pimp (LoonyAlana) | 501 comments I hope this is still available when I'm more freed up... but I'd be lying if I said I could promise this in 4 weeks. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

I don't think there are sweeter words for an author to hear (well, or read in this case).

J.A. Beard (jabeard) | 145 comments I think I e-mailed everybody, but for various reasons I won't go into I accidentally sent out the non-proofed version.

I've e-mailed you all the corrected version (and got it updated at all vendors!) and apologize for any reading unpleasantness this may have otherwise caused. :)

Those of you who finished it already seemed to like it, so ...

Good times! So many things to learn even after you write the darn thing.
