The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
In Nazi Germany, times are dark but a girl named Liesel Memminger finds sanctuary in books. Books that she steals. In a book narrated by Death, Liesel finds friends in an accordian player, a boy with hair the color of lemons and a Jewish boy hiding in the cellar. Markus Zusak tells a beautiful tale of finding simple joys in hard times.
