The Book Thief

The Book Thief
Zusak, Markus

Liesel Meminger is a foster girl living outside of Munich, who scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can't resist-books. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement. In superbly crafted writing that burns with intensity, award-winning author Markus Zusak, author of I Am the Messenger, has given us one of the most enduring stories of our time. "The kind of book that can be life-changing." -- The New York Times "Deserves a place on the same shelf with The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank." -- USA Today


Trying to make sense of the horrors of World War II, Death narrates the story of a German girl who steals books.
