The Book Thief

I am currently reading "The Book Thief". Have any of my followers read it???

I know Tracy B. picked it up about the time that the banned book at Stockton hit the news.

I'm not sure what age I would hand "The Book Thief"... there are some writing techniques at work that need a little bit of reading experience to understand (flashback, foreshadowing, and several literary devices at work by the author).

It's a great story... I can see it being used in units that would include teaching Anne Frank's story.

Off to read!
