Book Review
Liesel, a young German girl reading and thieving during WWII, has a life that is much too heavy for anyone to endure. Death narrates the story and provides a new perspective to this genre. We watch a small German town and small German families react to the decisions made by others. It's an emotional, heartbreaking tale, and when I wiped away the tears, I was so happy that I picked up this book.
