I finished reading "The Book Thief" by Markus Zusak early this morning.  It's a novel about a young girl in Nazi Germany just prior to and during WWII.  Told from the point of view of the Angel of Death, the story unfolds around Liesel, a pre-teen foster child who lives with a family just outside of Munich, Germany.  It's a beautiful, disturbing, deeply moving book, written almost in outline and diary form, at times.  Finishing the book is like losing a good friend.. I will wake up each day and miss Liesel Meminger, but know she is in a better place, as am I, for hearing her story.  Amazing job, Markus Zusak.
