"Sabrina scrambled through the darkness armed with a shovel and using the cold, stone walls as a guide."

Second in Michael Buckley's Sisters Grimm series, The Unusual Suspects, this is a strong follow-up to the first book.  I read it just about as fast as possible and, as it has a cliffhanger ending, put the third book on hold at the library as soon as I finished!

While being completely different, this book is also more of the same as the first.  There are fairy tale creatures gone amok and others who live fairly normal lives in human disguises.  The young Grimm sisters, Sabrina and Daphne, are still trying to adjust to discovering who they are related to and what their grandmother does for a living.  They are also still trying to find out what happened to their parents when they disappeared a year and a half before.  And, even more harrowing, they finally have to start at their new school.

If this is your sort of series, this is a great one with strong characters and lots of surprises.  I'll be moving to the next book soon!

All that glitters,

Support our site and buy The Unusual Suspects (The Sisters Grimm, Book 2) on Amazon or find it at your local library.  We borrowed our copy from the library.
