Teen Book Review

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

Rating 5

Reviewed by Michaela, grade 10

The Book Thief is a capturing tail about a foster care child living in Germany during World War II.  Told from "Death's" perspective we get to understand many angles to a historic event in shich we only ever see one side.  Along with great imagery, Zusak enchants you, amking you fall in love with the main character, Liesel.  Over the duration of the book many suprises appear and are carried away to bring the book to a fantastic close.  I highly recommend thsi book.  It was very well written and has characters that give us a new view on an old event.
