The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak
My boss gave me this book out of the blue one day. He said he was about to give it away, but he thought I might like it. When I finally got around to reading it, I was a bit put off by the "young adult" label it had. No one should be though. While I can see how it would be a good book to read in high school English classes, that doesn't mean it's not suited for an older audience. I read two of my all-time favourite books in high school English- Catcher in the Rye and To Kill a Mockingbird, I'm looking at you.
To summarize, this book about a young girl and her foster family in Germany during World War 2 was really good and I cried at the end. The End.
