Waiting on Wednesday – The Grimm Legacy

It is Wednesday which means it is once again time for Waiting on Wednesday hosted by Breaking the Spine.  This week I have chosen a book called The Grimm Legacy by Polly Shulman which will release July 8th 2010.  Here is a summary from Goodreads:

Elizabeth has a new job at an unusual library— a lending library of objects, not books. In a secret room in the basement lies the Grimm Collection. That’s where the librarians lock away powerful items straight out of the Brothers Grimm fairy tales: seven-league boots, a table that produces a feast at the blink of an eye, Snow White’s stepmother’s sinister mirror that talks in riddles.

When the magical objects start to disappear, Elizabeth embarks on a dangerous quest to catch the thief before she can be accused of the crime—or captured by the thief.

Polly 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.

I am a sucker for Grimm Fairy tales, I think they are fascinating.  So the premise of this book really has me intrigued!  What are you excited about this week?
