It's just a small story really, about among other things: a girl, some words, an accordionist, some fanatical Germans, a Jewish fist-fighter, and quite a lot of thievery. . . .

Set during World War II in Germany, Markus Zusak's
groundbreaking new novel is the story of Liesel Meminger, a
foster girl living outside of Munich. Liesel scratches out a
meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters
something she can't resist'books. With the help of her
accordion-playing foster father, she learns to read and
shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing
raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement
before he is marched to Dachau.
This is an unforgettable story about the ability of books to
feed the soul.
