This love for words, inspired her to steal books and make new friends on the way. But what will happen when the family hides and protects a Jewish fist fighter??

THEME

In life, theme's are all around us. Like: loyalty, bravery, etc. We kind of live a never ending story, there's always a setting, a plot, characters, and moral's. One day, might have one moral, and another day another one. Basically we have our own theme. Our personalities may give us a theme. Like: optimism, courage, creativity. But in the long run, our themes characterize us, and help us learn and become wiser.

I couldn't choose just one theme, so I picked three.
