The Book Thief
I'm not sure how it happened, but I've ended up with a lot of new youth fiction on my shelf over the years. I'm not sure how The Book Thief ended up on my shelf (was it a gift? was I browsing? did I read a review and put it on my Wish List?), but I'm glad it did.
Despite its appearances, it's a short book and a quick read. But it's powerful. I might be a sucker for anything to do with death, WWII, and the Holocaust (but really, who isn't?), but this book left me thinking and feeling for days. Read it. You'll be glad you did.
