The Grimm Legacy - Polly Shulman This was a very enjoyable read. The idea of a lending library for magical, fairy tale items was great. I enjoyed the characters and the pace was good. Usual YA fare with the kids trying to do everything themselves without involving adults, but that is part of the fun - seeing how they work together and learn from the experience. POTENTIAL SPOILER: I would have liked to see some resolution to Elizabeth's family issues, but perhaps that is for another book. There is a lot of material for more, so I'm hoping for at least a sequel. I will be looking for more from Shulman. Great for YA readers who like fairy tales, magic, action and some light romance.
