Book Review - "The Book Thief"

"The Book Thief" by Markus Zusak

This is one of the best books I have ever read. It is the story of a young foster child girl in Nazi Germany. Her real parents had been sought out as communists. The story is narrated by death, and apparently death is an elegant speaker. See World War II through the eyes of death as he follows this extraordinary girl who learns to have both a passion and hate for the magic of words.

If you would like to check out this book, ask your local librarian, who can get it or put it on reserve for you!
