Book Review - "The Book Thief"
Do you like challenging, interesting books?
If so, this is your book. The book thief is about a girl who finds her first book next to her brother's grave, called, "The Grave Diggers Handbook." Her foster father teaches her to read and write. Soon she is stealing books from Nazi book burnings and libraries! When her foster family hides a Jewish man in their basement, her world opens up and falls apart. And to her, her nice easy world soon turns into a fearful life, where everyone knows her as the book thief.
Will she still steal books, even against her foster father's will?
This book is by: Markus Zusak. There are some bad words in it just to let you know. If those words make you uncomfortable, try "The Diary of Anne Frank", this book is just as good.
