The Council of Mirrors
2012, Michael Buckley
The Sisters Grimm is a children's fantasy series written by Michael Buckley and illustrated by Peter Ferguson. The series features two sisters, Sabrina Grimm and Daphne Grimm, and consists of nine novels that were published from 2005 to 2012.
After their parents disappear, Sabrina and Daphne Grimm go through a series of foster homes. In each place, they must work as maids, servants, and other jobs inappropriate for children. They even experience abuse and neglect. Their caseworker, Ms. Minerva Smirt, is a harsh and uncaring woman who repeatedly fails to assign them to a safe home. After all of their troubles, they end up in the care of their long-lost grandmother, who they believed was dead and Sabrina worries is crazy, due to the old woman's belief that fairy tales exist.
