Shelter From The Storm

I just finished reading The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. It was recommended by Kim, and now I will recommend it to you, and everyone else.

a young girl - an accordion - a world war -
a loving heart - stolen crosswords - Hansi -
a boy with lemon hair - a man with feathers for hair -
words - books -reading- writing - loving of the unloved
all narrated by death

Liesel came out.
They hugged and cried and fell to the floor.

I'm reading this book right this second. Well, not right this second, but I was reading it while I was on the bus this morning. I'm only on page 60, but I hear from everyone that it's incredible!

Weird - T.J. Maxx had a damaged copy of this so I bought it for $5 (just because you recommended it). I read it at night this week-end in Jackson. How can this book be for young adults? - It's for EVERYONE! It's so good, I can't put it down.
