The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
What a spellbinding book. The fact that I love books, and our main character loves books, just pulled me right in!
In 1939 Nazi Germany, Liesel finds a single book visiting her brother’s grave. The Gravedigger’s Handbook, is her first book she steals. She falls in love with books and is soon stealings them from book burnings personal libraries, and wherever she can find them.
Her foster family soon taken in a Jew to hide and her world is turned upside down.
I highly recommend this book if you have not yet read it. The author’s writing has you spellbound immediately!
