    Story
    (7259)

    It's just a small story really, about, among other things, a girl, some words, an accordionist, some fanatical Germans, a Jewish fist-fighter, and quite a lot of thievery. Set during World War II in Germany, Markus Zusak's groundbreaking new novel is the story of Liesel Meminger, a foster girl living outside of Munich. Liesel scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can't resist: books.

    "MY MOST FAVORITE BOOK EVER"
    Overall

    5 stars is not enough - 10 stars - this is phenomonal! Wow, I mean WOW! Do not be fooled by the Young Adult catagory - I have been listening to books for a long time and this is the first time I have been so moved that I needed to write a review. Why is this not on the Best Seller list? I loved it more than the Kite Runner. READ THIS BOOK!

    A Grown-Up Kind of Pretty is a powerful saga of three generations of women, plagued by hardships and torn by a devastating secret, yet inextricably joined by the bonds of family. Fifteen-year-old Mosey Slocumb-spirited, sassy, and on the cusp of womanhood-is shaken when a small grave is unearthed in the backyard, and determined to figure out why it's there. Liza, her stroke-ravaged mother, is haunted by choices she made as a teenager. But it is Jenny, Mosey's strong and big-hearted grandmother....

    Story

    The story involves you immediately and you want more - I loved the quick, witty, conversation - I loved the story from 3 different points of view and I really loved the southern charm that the author brings to the performance. Buy it, you will not be disappointed.
