I Am Grateful For: The Book Thief

The Book Thief
Mark Zusak

This is my daughter's favorite book. I'm thankful for it for that reason, but also because it's something her and I can share. There isn't always much a mom can really share with her 14 year old daughter, and the love of a book is a good one!

It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still.

Liesel Meminger is a foster girl living outside of Munich, who scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist–books. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing
raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement.
