 A Whole New World: A Twisted Tale releasing September 1, 2015 by  Liz Braswell 

Enter A Whole New World, the first book in a new series, a twisted tale, that reimagines classic Disney stories in surprising new ways. Each book asks the question: What if one key moment from a familiar Disney film was changed? And in this dark and daring version of Aladdin, the twist is : What if Aladdin never found the lamp?
When Jafar steals the Genie's lamp, he uses his first two wishes to become sultan and the most powerful sorcerer in the world. Agrabah lives in fear, waiting for his third and final wish. To stop the power-mad ruler, Aladdin and the deposed princess Jasmine must unite the people of Agrabah in rebellion. But soon their fight for freedom threatens to tear the kingdom apart in a costly civil war. What happens next? A Street Rat becomes a leader. A princess becomes a revolutionary. And readers will never look at the story of Aladdin in the same way again. Ages 12 and up.

I'm a big fan of reading fiction and love the ones that twist up a classic kind of like Wicked did for The Wizard of Oz.
