The Book Thief

by Markus Zusak, 550 pages

Death meets Liesel Meminger three times. The first will be the experience that will define the rest of her life and set her on the path of being the Book Thief. Stealing books provides much more for Liesel than simply obtaining the item, it gives her life meaning and serves as a coping method for coming of age in Germany during World War II. This is a powerful book, highly deserving of its Printz Honor.

  1. This is one of my favorite books of all time. The NXT Chapter book discussion for 20/30-somethings will be discussing it on Thursday, March 1, at 7:30 pm in the Harrison Room at TLC and we'd love to see you there...okay, shameless plug is over!
