Review Time! #1
The book I will admit that it is sad, but it is the truth. The main character Liesel struggles with what Germay is becoming, she hates Hitler, feels sorry for the Jews and her best friend wants to be Jesse Owens. She isn't a normal German girl. In Hitlers eyes they should love him, hate Jews and no one should want to be a black American. When Liesel steals books she does it because she loves to read, she steals from the mayors wife only to realise that she should write a book, a book that she loses the day the world ends in her eyes. Death carries the book until he can return it to her.
The life of Liesel in time of war wasn't great, but she does learn about who she is. She defys what people think of Germans during this time and shows the side of the goodness that some people during the time had.
