I'm on a bit of fairy tale kick. This book combines libraries and fairy tales, which makes it even more awesome.

Elizabeth used to have a dull life. Her mother died recently of cancer - her father remarried and became distant. She doesn't get along with her stepmother or stepsisters, and had to switch from the private school and dance lessons she loved to a public school, so that her father could pay for her stepsister's college tuition. Things start to change to Elizabeth after one of her teachers recognizes her potential, and recommends her for a job at the New York Circulating Material Repository, a lending library of objects, rather than books. The library contains all sorts of objects, from commonplace to rare, but the most mysterious section is the Grimm Collection, a room full of objects from the Grimm fairy tales. Soon Elizabeth and her fellow library pages get caught up in a mystery - someone is stealing magical objects, and they're determined to find out who. They may have bitten off more than they can chew...
