Mysterious and breath-taking! This is the type of book that grabs your attention and won't let go. Though I felt like it needed a bit more of adventure. I think the end didn't really make sense. I would enjoy a sequel!

Nice idea and plot, but not clean enough that I feel I could recommend to any kids I know.

BEST BOOK EVER!!!!!! A must-read!!!

Loved this story!!! I wish all libraries had rooms and objects like these in them! Thankfully, there are great and magical books to take us to libraries like these!

If you like watching Once Upon a Time, you'll like this. If only my library had a collection of magical objects! (and used pneumatic tubes...)

Good enough to deserve a sequel. Interesting set of characters and the concept is very good.

Loved the book. The heroine wasn't too girly like in most books that have a female lead who usually obsesses over the boys. The fantasy element was cool and interesting and even though it took awhile for the action to start up the slower parts were interesting too. Jaya was my favorite character and I'm excited about the sequel since she seems to be in it.

Really enjoyed the book and all its elements, plot, characters, settings, but unlike some other posters below, I don't want a sequel because I'm not sure where the author would go for a follow-up book. I quite liked this as a stand-alone and would definitely recommend to anyone who still enjoys the magic of fairy tales.

Elizabeth, a New York high school student gets a job at the New York Circulation Material Respository. She loves it but something isn't right in the Grimm collection. You will learn about the magic of fairy tales while Elizabeth solves the mystery of the Grimm collection. I would recommend this book for kids ages 10-13. It's a great book and a fun read I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. If Polly Shulman is reading this PLEASE make a sequel!!!!!!

Lonely teenager and avid Grimm Fairy Tale enthusiast, Elizabeth, finds herself working at a special object repository-- library-- along with several other teens, including one of the coolest kids at school. The library has a mysterious and magical collection of Grimm Fairy Tale items that are being stolen and may be used for dark purposes. For me, the book started well and Schulman definitely paints a great physical setting -- NYC, the library and the different rooms, the gothic feel, etc. but the characters are the usual teen things-- and the story does not have enough to do with Grimm fairy tales to hold my interest-- while i thought Elizabeth had promise, the others were typical teen types-- and as for elizabeth, i found my self wondering how she went from hating to loving one teen and why she was attracted to him in the first place. started with promise but i lost intersest-- still, i am an adult and i will see if i have a 5th grader who might like it-- and , perhaps, give me a better perspective of what is appealing about it. Althought the premise was clever and the beginning had promise, i found myself disappointed and fought to finish it. Ah well -- you can't llike everything.
