The Book Thief

By Markus Zusak

Death narrates this astonishing story of Liesel and her experiences, as a young, German girl, during WWII. Together with the Jewish man hidden in her basement, Liesel adapts to living in a world of horror and loss, punctuated by brief moments of beauty (highlighted through her love of books). An absolute must-read told from the German perspective.

Great for:

  • Most readers (adult and teen); 14 and up
  • Anyone interested in a story narrated by Death, itself.
  • Those looking for a different take on the WWII: specifically from the Germans who suffered under Nazi rule
