In 1938, young orphan Liesel arrives at a new home with her new foster parents, Hans and Rosa. When Hans, a kind and humble house painter, learns that Liesel cannot read or write so he teaches Liesel the wonders of the written language - English. Liesel grows to love books, even rescuing one from a Nazi bonfire. Though Liesel's new family may barely scrape by in money, their situation becomes even more precarious when they secretly shelter a Jewish boy whose father once saved Hans' life. The danger and excitement continues as you read on about Liesel's journey.
The book is amazing and it shows me how a person living in that era would survive by barely scraping by. I have really enjoyed the book and would recommend it for all age groups.
