"Oh, Miss Elphaba, you terrible mean thing, you're pretty!"
(believe it or not, that little green girl is the wicked witch of the west!)
I'm half way of the book, Gregory Maguire's Wicked is indeed a redeeming piece of literature in sense of good and evil. Elphaba is indeed one new face in the world of literary heroines in terms of nature, nature and understanding. (as well as spunk! Elphie has spunk! XD)
I love this part of the book because this is Elphaba's first contact of a total stranger on her own. (as well as the first time she talked as an adolescent in the book)
