Elizabeth has the best after school job EVER.  Failing to connect at school or with her new step-family, Elizabeth finds her place as a page at the New York Circulating Material Repository -- a library for rare and historical items.  There she discovers the Grimm Collection, a secret room full of fairy tale items -- including  the talking mirror from Snow White.  When the items (and fellow pages) start disappearing, Elizabeth must find out who's behind it, before she becomes a suspect -- or a victim.  (Isinglass Teen Award Committee, 2015)
