New York high school student Elizabeth gets an after-school job as a page at the "New-York Circulating Material Repository," and when she gains coveted access to its Grimm Collection of magical objects, she and the other pages are drawn into a series of frightening adventures involving mythical creatures and stolen goods.
With her father remarried to a Cinderella-esque stepmother type and no friends at her new school, Elizabeth Rew jumps at the chance to be a page at the New-York Circulating Materials Repository. It is no ordinary library, but a huge building filled with objects of all kinds, like Abraham Lincoln's hat and Marie Antoinette's wig. Assigned to work in the Grimm Collection, Elizabeth discovers that fairy tales are indeed real, and scores of magical objects, such as seven-league boots, from the stories reside in the Repository. But someone is stealing these precious relics, and pages are disappearing. Determined to figure out what is going on to clear her name, Elizabeth falls into an unexpected world where fantasy is reality.
