THE GRIMM LEGACY
Polly Shulman
Scholastic
2010

Available: Hardcover, paperback, Kindle, audible

    Elizabeth's life is turned upside down when her father remarries. She has to transfer schools so her dad can pay her new stepsister's tuition at college. Home life is not the same and Elizabeth can't seem to make friends at her new school because they've all know each other forever. When her social studies teacher recommends her for a job at the New York Circulating Material Repository, she jumps at the opportunity. It's a strange place, kind of like a library, but instead of books, it lends things. Old historical things and new contemporary things. Secret things, like the magical Grimm Collection in the basement. The job is working out great. It's interesting and she's making friends. But then articles start to disappear. She, along with her new friends are caught in a mysterious quest to recover what's been taken.
    This is a fun blend of a contemporary story filled with fantasy and blended into a mystery. A fun read, both fast paced and funny. It should delight both fantasy and mystery fans.

Target audience: Grades 6-9
Mystery / Suspense: exciting
Kid appeal: Yes!
