September's Book Selection

And the winner of this month's Reader's Choice poll is.....The Book Thief by Markus Zusak ***HERE IS A SMALL FACT***
You are going to die
1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier.
Liesel, a nine-year-old girl, is living with a foster family on Himmel Street. Her parents have been taken away to a concentration camp. Liesel steals books. This is her story and the story of the inhabitants of her street when the bombs begin to fall.
This novel is narrated by Death. It’s a small story, about: a girl, an accordionist, Some fanatical Germans, A Jewish fist fighter, And quite a lot of thievery.
Another thing you should know: Death will visit the Book Thief three times . . .
