The Book Thief by Markus Zusak (Part 1)

You love The Book Thief so much we’re doing two posts! Here’s the first:

Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein for a moving wartime friendship

Stay Where You Are and Then Leave by John Boyne for a child trying to make sense of war

The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon for a story where books hold the answer

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer for hope against the odds
