The Book Thief is a MUST read for teens and adults alike! Told by Death itself, Zusak's novel follows the life of young, recently-orphaned Liesel as she experiences true kindness, friendship, family, poverty, discrimination, and loss in war-stricken Germany. The Book Thief is a fresh take on WWII fiction; featuring Death as narrator, unforgettable characters, propaganda-like bulletins (much like the leaflets disbursed during the war) throughout the book, and a resonating story that will fill your heart. Quite possibly the BEST book I've read in the last 5 years. Pick this one up today!
