 The Book Thief

by Markus Zusak

During World War II in Germany, Liesel Meminger is a foster girl living outside of Munich. "While Liesel sometimes joins up with a gang to steal food and the like, her only thieving passion is for books. Not good books or bad books -- just books. From her bedroom to the bomb shelter down the road, reading helps her commune with the living and the dead -- and finally, it is the mere existence of stories that proves to be her salvation." -- The New York Times Book Review
