1939:Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier. Liesel, a nine-year-old girl, is living with a foster family on Himmel Street. Her parents have been taken away to a concentration camp. Liesel steals books. This is her story and the story of the inhabitants of her street when the bombs begin to fall.
I have already read many books set in Nazi Germany, this one was nevertheless really exciting and breathtaking. I really liked the idea of having the story told from that perspective and could not put down the book until the end.
