S kind of woven in a roundabout way It slightly annoyed me that Elizabeth kept mentioning how great her new riend Anjali looked and how the two guys where April 16th: Virginia Tech Remembers fawning over her Sounded a tiny bit jealous but I m glad that Elizabeth holds no malice She is a very kind hearted character she has to be or else she probably wouldn t have gotten the job in theirst place One thing is I couldn t get enough of was all the magical objects that the characters got to use I was kind of jealous myself Such a cool idea There s a repository half museum half library where "You Can Check Out Everything From Marie Antoinette S Wig "can check out everything rom Marie Antoinette s wig the shoes belonging to the Twelve Dancing Princesses Special students are referred by their teachers to be pages at the repository and there the un begins Sort of I had a hard time getting into this book because even though it was in Mindful Living with Aspergers Syndrome first person I didn t really connect with Elizabeth the main character We aren t privy to a lot of he This is a very original and magical story I have always lovedairy tales of All Kinds And I kinds and I T Think I Ll t think I ll grow out of it Maybe it s a girl thing Either way I don t care because I had so much un reading this book Yes I elt that I literally had unuick Overview Elizabeth Rew hasn t been doing too hot lately Her best riend has moved away and she hasn t made any Space Kid friends at her new school Things seem to beinally going in the right direction though After a referral Circumstantial Evidence: Death, Life, and Justice in a Southern Town from her social studies teacher Elizabeth gets a job working as a pageor the New York Circulating Material Repository Yeah big mouthful The repository is a sort of library but not really They lend out objects as common as ondue pots to Marie Antoinette s wig Elizabeth seems to be making riends with the other pages despite the secrecy surrounding the dungeonbasement that stores the Grimm Collection where magical items Every Drop for Sale: Our Desperate Battle Over Water from the Brothers Grimmairy tales are kept safe As it turns out items are being stolen Down We Go: Living Into the Wild Ways of Jesus from the Grimm Collection and Elizabeth and the ot.
