The Sisters Grimm: The Unusual Suspects (book review)
For most people, living in a community of runaway fairy-tale characters, called Everafters, would be amazing. But not for Sabrina Grimm. It just so happens that her great-great-great-great grandfather Wilhelm Grimm, along with the powerful witch Baba Yaga, cast an enchantment on the small town of Ferryport Landing, ensuring that no Everafters could escape. So most Everafters hate the Grimms.
Although she puts up with the Everafters every day, Sabrina does not trust them. She knows one of them kidnapped her parents, and left her stuck with her eccentric grandma, a four thousand year old fairy, the Big Bad Wolf, and her sister Daphne Grimm, for family. Sabrina is determined to find out which one of the Everafters is responsible, and bring them to justice.
I thought this book was really well-written. It was funny and entertaining, and at times suspenseful. This is the second in The Sisters Grimm series, and I hope there will be many more to come.
I give this book 9 out of 10 stars.
