Book review: The Book Thief

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

Reviewed by Abbie T., Grade 7

What is it about?
A girl is taken to a foster home in Molching, Germany, in 1939. Liesel soon comes to realize what Hitler is about, while her foster parents hide a Jew in the basement. Liesel begins to steal books, and steals 14 in all.

Why I picked it up
: I had heard people talk about it.
What I thought of it: It is a refreshing perspective of WWII from inside Nazi Germany, and how the narrator is death.

I would suggest it for:
I would recommend this to World War II fanatics, grades 6 and up.
