Welcome to Teen Reads!
For eight weeks this summer, every Monday, the Teen blog will feature a book review and reading recommendations within a given theme.
Each review will be a recommended read from an OPL Teen Advisory Group member.
Here is this week’s review and recommendations.
Review by Jane from Beaverbrook branch
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
If you love historical fiction, you’ll love The Book Thief. Narrated by “Death” itself, Zusak’s powerful book explores the frightening realities of Nazi Germany and the devastating consequences of Nazi Germany on an innocent girl. The story revolves around her struggles surrounding living in a foster home, the nation’s political conflict, and personal growth. This is an absolute must-read if you want a story to cry to, and if you love read GREAT writing.
Do you have another readalike suggestion for the History theme?
