The Grimm Legacy By: Polly Shulman
Elizabeth does not really fit in at her new school. She had to change schools when her father married her step mother and they had to pay for her stepsister to go to college. But Elizabeth likes to succeed and does a great job in her school work. Her social studies teacher gets her a job at the New York Circulating Material Repository where she is able to help catalog and loan out items that people need, including magical items. But something is fishy at the repository and things and people are going missing. Elizabeth and her new friends decide to try to find out what is happening. But when magic is involved they have no idea what they are getting themselves into.
Perfect read for any young person!! I would say all fourth graders and up would be thrilled to read this book. A fun mix of magic and mystery fills the pages with never ending enjoyment. I loved the character Elizabeth for her awkwardness and her longing to just belong somewhere. It is just so good!!
I borrowed this from a friend.
