Strathmere Favorites:
Volunteer Marion Ingram recommends: The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. This story takes place in Nazi Germany during WWII and portrays the life of the ordinary German citizen. Liesel Meminger, a nine year old girl who cannot read, picks up her first book in the snow near her brother’s grave. Thus she is given the nickname “book thief” by the Grim Reaper, the narrator of the story. (available in our Young Adult and beach book sections)
