Staff Reviews

When we think of the Germans during World War II, we don't generally feel very sympathetic. This novel will change that.
The story centers on a young lady who lives in Germany during the rise and reign of Hitler. We hear stories of many people from her village, and their various reactions to Hitler's ideas. Some days she's just a young girl trying to get through school and have a bit of fun in the afternoon, and other days she's experiencing moments of terror. Historical fiction with an interesting perspective.

— Sheri, Raleigh


For use in schools and libraries only. Trying to make sense of the horrors of World War II, Death relates the story of Liesel, a young German girl whose book-stealing and storytelling talents help sustain her family and the Jewish man they are hiding.
