    The Book Thief

    By Markus Zusak. It's a beautiful, moving story set in Nazi Germany, narrated by death. I don't think I've ever read another book that has made me smile, laugh, cry and melt inside all at once. This man has an incredible imagination. I strongly recommend.

    Dierbeck. I'm finding it pretty great. It's about an over-developed 11 year old in the 70s making her way through life with a crappy family situation. it somewhat parallels Alice in Wonderland.
