The Grimm Chronicles Volume 2
200 years ago, the Brothers Grimm changed everything.
With the help of a little magic, fairy tales were made real, manifesting all over the world. Charming princes. Gold-hunting dwarfs. Terrible step-mothers. Heroic animals.
Then, slowly, they began to change. Everyone—from Prince Charming to the old miller—grew more evil. Corrupted. A hero was chosen to stop them, hunting them down one by one and destroying them with the help of a magic pen and a special rabbit assistant.
For 200 years, the hero’s magic pen has been passed on from generation to generation. The newest hero is Alice Goodenough, an 18-year-old junior from Washington High School. While her friends spent their summer working and having fun, Alice found herself doing battle with creatures most human beings don’t even realize exist. A giant snake. A blood-sucking prince. A terrifying half-man, half-hedgehog. Dastardly dwarfs intent on mind-controlling everyone who uses a cell phone.
Now, senior year has begun. With it comes a new challenge at school, where bullies have grown bolder and classes more challenging. As if that’s not enough, Alice must face off against a collection of Corrupted who all share a terrible secret, one that might awaken a creature capable of doing untold damage. To uncover the secret, Alice will have to face off against a man-eating lizard, a bloodthirsty sea captain, and a mysterious wizard who can see into the future …

I think the coolest thing in the world was when I read a review about a month ago–it was a positive review, which was cool enough as it is, but then I scrolled down to the COMMENTS section and I saw a couple of people had posted things like: “I love this series” and “I totally agree. I’ve been hooked on this series since the first book.” Coolest feeling in the world.

What is your favorite scene in the book?
All of the monsters in the story come from Grimms’ Fairy Tales. Some were bad in the fairy tales, and some were good. It doesn’t matter. What matters is finding characters who can fit into the themes of the series and move the story forward. It’s been a lot of fun. Sometimes, we happen across a character in the fairy tales who we’ve never heard of and we absolutely HAVE to use them. Like the takling sausage.
Alice Munro’s Dear Life. I’m a big fan of her short stories.
