This novel, written for young adults, tells the story of a girl living in Germany during WWII who copes with the turmoil around her through the books she steals.  The book is introduced and narrated by Death, whose voice provides a unique and haunting perspective of wartime.  Included among its awards are the 2007 Printz Honor Book  and the 2007 Top Ten Best Books for Young Adults , both from the Young Adult Library Association.
