Sophie Nélisse as Liesel Meminger in The Book Thief (2013).
While subjected to the horrors of World War II Germany, young Liesel finds solace by stealing books and sharing them with others. In the basement of her home, a Jewish refugee is being sheltered by her adoptive parents.
The movie obviously couldn’t live up to the book, but I still liked it. And the acting was great—especially the girl who played Liesel.
Highlights from this year’s brooklynbookfestival, including a hilarious talk with Bob Saget and John Leguizamo. Oh and the totes! It was very difficult to not add to my ever-growing tote collection, not to mention my book collection too.
