Just Read...

My older sister Annie told me about this book in September. She is a really good reader and I get excited when she tells me about a book she is reading. I got this for Christmas and couldn't wait to dive into it. Luckily my sister prepared me that it took a little while to get into. So I kept with it and really loved the story. The narrator is Death, which made it such a unique way of writing and telling about this story taken place in Germany during the Holocaust. The main character is a young girl and she has a love for words. I also enjoyed the relationships she had with her foster parents, friends, and neighbors. Her foster mother had quite the vocabulary of German swear words, Her foster father was an accordian playing, cigaretter rolling, simple man, and soooo sweet. If for no other reason, pick up this book because of this picture:
