Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood by Marjane Satrapi. "In graphic novel format, the author describes her youth in revolutionary Iran. From the overthrow of the Shah to the establishment of the new regime, she witnesses heartbreak and struggle as life changes in her country."
Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood a graphic novel by: Marjane Satrapi “Listen. I don't like to preach, but here's some advice. You'll meet a lot of jerks in life. If they hurt you, remember it's because they're stupid. Don't react to their cruelty. There's nothing worse than bitterness and revenge. Keep your dignity and be true to yourself.” ― Marjane Satrapi, Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood
Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood by Marjane Satrapi Wise, funny, and heartbreaking, Persepolis is Marjane Satrapi’s memoir of growing up in Iran during the Islamic Revolution. In powerful black-and-white comic strip images, Satrapi tells the story of her life in Tehran from ages six to fourteen, years that saw the overthrow of the Shah’s regime, the triumph of the Islamic Revolution, and the devastating effects of war with Iraq.
The graphic novel depicted a perspective of a child in the midst of war and revolution. At a first glance, the graphic novel is merely about Marji observing the Islamic Revolution, followed by the Iran-Iraq war. However, after re-reading it the second time, the revolution and the protest were not just externally observed, but also experience internally by Marji herself, as a coming of age teenager. Her protest included her trying the first puff of a cigarette to symbolize her adulthood.

The Book Thief is the story of Liesel Meminger. Liesel is almost ten when she ends up in Molching with Hans and Rosa Hubermann, her new foster parents. It is 1939. In Nazi Germany. Through their eyes we see Hitler and Nazi Germany; we experience the atrocities and the small kindnesses. Zusak’s story is mostly about everyday things: hunger, pettiness, laughter, hope, cruelty and kindness. Loved it.

Reading list for my jr high son, we read it for book club. Everyone loved it. Story of young boy in WWII Germany. Satan narrates.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. This is a story about a girl in WWII Germany who steals books before they can be burned and shares them with her neighbors and a Jewish man who is hidden in her basement. The story is narrated by Death and is appropriately dark, but manages to be uplifting at the same time. So far, my favorite book read in our book club....
Trying to make sense of the horrors of World War II, Death relates the story of Liesel--a young German girl whose book-stealing and story-telling talents help sustain her family and the Jewish man they are hiding, as well as their neighbors. Available from WVDELI, Marion County Public Library, Mannington Public Library, and Fairview Public Library.
Set during WWII in Germany about a little girl named Liesel. Clever and beautifully written. This is a book worth reading.
The Book Thief. One of my all time favorite books. So sad. One of the most talented character writers ever. I wept. And death never looked so gentle.
