The Book Thief

by Marcus Zusak

A foster girl named Liesel, is taken to the Hubermanns. The narrator of the book is Death, which just adds to the amazingness of this book. Death explains the story in precise detail and explains how "Papa", also known as Hans Hubermann is a comforting man, who teaches Liesel to read. Liesel learns to read and steals books during the time of the Holocaust in Germany. 

This book really makes you think about Death and what it is. Death explains about taking people and you realize how the Jews and anyone who helped the Jews, suffered severely. It really helps grasp the concept of that time period.

I would definitely recommend this book to others. Most kids, like myself, love to read about fighting and Death. Everything about this book was amazing!
