The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

although this book was a little hard to get into at first i really enjoyed it. narrated by death, this book takes place in Nazi Germany. it reminds me of Anne frank, the way they hide a Jew in the basement. one of the main characters was a young girl who lost her family at the beginning of the book. her brother died on the train, and her mother dropped her off at a house and she never returned. in the beginning she missed her mo, but she quickly discarded that and replaced her old family with her new foster family. 
that ending, i swear it almost made me cry. i mean, i knew it had to happen, they were in the middle of WW11, but i really didn't want it to happen. i was surprised when the bombing wasn't the ending, but happy to know that there was a sweet ending for that awful thing that happened.
i don't know what else to write without spoiling it! if what you read before wasn't too much of a spoiler, i mean. i wish i could be a book thief, under different circumstances though, of course. i don't think i could handle being in WW11. i loved the twist with death in it, I've never really read anything like it before, and it was awesome. if you haven't read this book yet, i definitely recommend it!
