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.
