The Book Thief

Some books are just amazing.
This is one of them.

The story, told mostly through the point of view of a single narrator (played by Death), follows a young girl in Nazi Germany as she becomes a book thief and goes from there. During this time, she gains & loses friends, family & books while she & her family try to hide a big secret.

Nothing I say will do the book justice.
Just go read it.

(Note: I was recommended this book by a friend who said that the narrator reminded her of me. I've since talked to about 4 others who have read this book as well... no negative words about it. So just go read it. Now.)
