Author Markus Zusak (The Book Thief). <-------YEAH KEEP SMILING MARKUS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU DID (cries in corner overwhelmed with emotion)

The extraordinary #1 New York Times bestseller that is now a major motion picture, Markus Zusak's unforgettable story is about the ability of books to feed the soul. It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still. Liesel Meminger is a foster girl living outside of Munich, who scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist–books.
