2010 book 263

Polly Shulman's The Grimm Legacy
Fun, mostly light story about a girl who gets an after-school job at the New York Circulating Material Repository, a library that circulates objects instead of books--and which has several very special collections, including some of the magical objects from the Grimm brothers' stories. Being a girl with two not-great stepsisters and a good heart, she of course has adventures, finds friends, and maybe even has a little romance. I genuinely liked all the characters and didn't find it too hard to suspend my feelings of "just get help from a grownup already!" and the interactions with fairy tale items were very entertaining indeed.
