The Grimm Legacy by Polly Shulman
The Grimm Legacy by Polly Shulman 325 pages
High school student Elizabeth is feeling lonely: her new stepmother is taking up most of her father's time and she just transferred to a new school where she doesn't have any friends. When her history teacher suggests that she get a job with the New York Circulating Material Repository, she looks forward to the new experience. The Repository is a lending library of objects - some ordinary and some possessing secret powers. Fascinated by the Grimm Collection and its magical menagerie of items taken straight out of Grimm's fairy tales, Elizabeth and her friends at the repository are entangled in a web of mystery as items and people begin to disappear! It's up to Elizabeth and her friends to solve the mystery and return the powerful artifacts to the collection.
