The Sisters Grimm

I just finished book 4 of the Sisters Grimm series. Apparently, every female of my family that lives in the borders of Orange County has already read them, and kept them a secret. So, this post if for anyone else who's out of the loop, like me.

The books center around Sabrina and Daphne Grimm, great-great-....-great-granddaughters of the famous Brothers Grimm. In the books, the Brothers Grimm didn't invent the fairy tales, they "documented" them... as in the characters are real. Now, centuries later the immortal Everafters, as they call themselves, cause trouble and it's up to the Grimms to solve the mysteries and keep the peace.

The books are written for a young audience, maybe 7-14 years old, but they're cute and you can read one in about 3 hours. There are five currently published with the 6th due out in April.
