Liesel Meminger, The Book Thief, lived with her foster family just outside of Munich during the World War II in 1939. Stealing books especially something that she cannot resist, she learnt how to read and shared her stolen books with her neighbors during the World War bombing raids. Hiding in the basement of her house, terrified and shaken as bombs fell on top of their head, Liesel learnt the power of words and developed a love for books that connected her to the others. Told through the point of view of death, The Book Thief provides a moving story about how Liesel learns the true meaning of family through her caring new family, and about friendships that she shared with other people down in the basement.
