Kinondoni, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

By her brother&#39;s graveside, Liesel&#39;s life is changed when she picks up a single object, partially hidden in the snow. It is The Gravedigger&#39;s Handbook, left there by accident, and it is her first act of book thievery.So begins a love affair with books and words, as Liesel, with the help of her accordion-playing foster father, learns to read. Soon she is stealing books from Nazi book-burnings, the mayor&#39;s wife&#39;s library, wherever there are books to be found. But these are dangerous times. When Liesel&#39;s foster family hides a Jewish fist-fighter in their basement, Liesel&#39;s world is both opened up, and closed down.The Book Thief is a story about the power of words to make worlds. In superbly crafted writing that burns with intensity, award-winning author Markus Zusak has given us one of the most enduring stories of our time.<br />Genre: Historical Fiction
