Abstract:

It is 1939 and times are getting tough for everyone in Germany. Ten-year old Liesel and her brother are on their way to be adopted into a foster home, but sadly, the brother dies en route. After his burial, Liesel steals her first book, The Grave Diggers Handbook. The remarkable thing is that Liesel cannot read. We follow Liesel through the war years, as she learns to read, laugh, and play; to interact with family, friends, and neighbors; and, most dramatically, to protect a Jew named Max. Death is the extraordinary narrator of the novel. He spots Liesel and is fascinated with her. He hopes that the goodness she embodies will counteract the world's tendency toward evil, especially in Nazi Germany. The small rebellions carried out by Liesel and a handful of others show that resistance to tyranny may be possible and that one individual can make a difference.
