Ue boots a table that produces a feast at the blink of an eye Snow White's stepmother's sinister mirror that talks in riddlesWhen the magical objects start to disappear Elizabeth embarks on a dangerous uest to catch the thief before she can be accused of I was pretty sure I'd go 4 stars on this one but finally had to go 3 I mean I know it's a YA book I know that the protagonists are young but there's something that when it shows up in a read that simply drives me crazyHave you ever seen that TV commercial where the voice over says When you're in a horror movie you make really bad decisions The people are arguing about what to do Should they hide in the attic hide in the cellar??? Then one if them says why can't we get in the running car? and the guy says Are you crazy? Let's hide behind the chainsawsThere comes a time about halfway into this novel where the kids They're 17 but act younger make that kind of decisionsover and over and overThe book begins very slowly but some of you may love it because what we're doing is learning in great detail about the New York Circulating Material Repository It takes a great deal of time to get into the actual fantasy of the bookI was a bit tired but the story finally kicked in only to have Elizabeth and her friends frustrate me no end by making choices somewhat like deciding to run across the uicksand instead of taking a pathAll that said not a bad book and I mostly enjoyed it There's lots of whimsey in the ideas and the book will work well for a wide range of youthsso enjoy

EPUB The Grimm Legacy

The Grimm LegacyThe crime or captured by the thiefPolly Shulman has created a contemporary fantasy with a fascinating setting and premise starring an ordinary girl whose after school job is far from ordinary and leads to a world of excitement romance and magical intrigue There is something rather grand about finding a new good book to read And it is always disappointing to discover that the new good book isn't all that good The Grimm Legacy by Polly Shulman was wonderfully writen for the most part The dialogue was weak in a few areas and the plot was too slow in some spots and too fast in others but these issues were easily forgotten as I continued reading But as is inevitable in modern teen lit the author decided that her charming story couldn't go on without at least one reference to sex Or two Are teenagers really that low? Can we truly not read anything without needing a titillating reference to birds and bees? Are we as brainless as that? Why can we not enjoy a beautifully crafted innocent exciting story without some sort of adult theme dragged in unnecessarily? We deserve credit I would have sincerely enjoyed this book if the author had not decided randomly shock her audience with risue images The charm of her modern fairy tale uickly spun into yet another steamy teen romance I must admit I am uite frustrated with the whole Young Adult genre in general; having condescending adults shove tripe down my throat does not appeal to me in the least Would I write this book off as a failure? No The author truly has talent and her story in general was enjoyable Unfortunately she saw fit to include two or three scenes which completely drew attention away from the plot and toward a relationship that was infatuation than true romance It would have merited a four or five star rating from me if not for this tiresome cliche plot device being yet again dredged up by Shulman
