Liesel and her world
At the young age of 10, Liesel is sent to a foster home with her brother, Werner, who then passes away on the train ride there. She is afraid of what is to come next, but is shown comfort by her foster father, Hans Hubermann. Her foster mother, Rosa Hubermann, shows very little kindness towards Liesel but Liesel knows that mama loves her. Himmel Street is a new place for her but she will adapt and learn to love her new home with all her heart and will be devastated by it later on. Her best friend, Rudy Steiner, will show love towards Liesel and persuade her to do things her old self wouldn't have done. The Book Thief never would have struck so easily if Rudy hadn't been there to help her with some of the books she stole from the mayor's wife's library. As Liesel grows up to become a young women, she learns the meaning of trust. She is trusted by her family to keep a very important secret hiding underneath her very home. Liesel isn't even allowed to tell Rudy of the secret!
