bookshelves: adventure, youth-fiction, supernatural-adventure

Left as orphans, the sisters Grimm (Sabrina & Daphne) were placed from here and there, but they always found a way to escape from each house and home. Finally having found a grandmother (Relda) to place them with, the frustrated social services personally left them at the train station and didn’t look back. Having only each other to depend on for so long, the sisters didn’t know how much they trusted this grandmother that had finally come from who knew where. Hearing the women talk about fairy tales like they were all true stories only confirmed that they would be crazy too if they stuck around. Even after meeting some of the legendary fairytale characters, Sabrina was still skeptical, but taking a few adventures through and with fairytales herself might change her mind.

This book, Sisters Grimm: Fairytale Detectives is such a good adventure story with loads of drama and suspense but it doesn’t forget that it is for kids. The destruction and betrayals have turns that I wasn’t expecting from this type of youth fiction, but thoroughly enjoyed all. Gotta love grandma too. Really interested in seeing how much the girls can grow now that they are open to the fairy tales being real in the next book, Unusual Suspects.
