Book Review: The Grimm Legacy

,The Grimm Legacy by by Polly Shulman is a young adult book of magic, mystery, adventure and fairy tales! And, though I didn't enjoy it as much as some of the other books I've read recently, I did keep turning the pages to find out what would happen next!

After writing a report on The Brothers Grimm, Elizabeth's teacher recommends her for a job at the New York Circulating Material Repository. The repository is a lot like a library, except they loan objects, not just books! But, from the start, things don't seem quite normal to Elizabeth. Even during her interview with Dr Rust, it seemed his freckles kept moving about his face. And, what kind of interview has you sorting buttons? And what about the special Grimm Collection in the basement? Are they really magical items from the Grimm Brothers fairy tales?

Elizabeth has to solve a mystery alongside some of the other student workers: Marc, the handsome athelte; Anjali, the perfect girl that all the guys love; and Aaron, who is serious about his work. Will they be able to solve the mystery and stay alive? Or, will they disappear like a former employee?
