I have about the first 25% of BSP read. I am also reading "The Book Thief." They both take place in Germany in the same time period. I must say it is an upsetting time. They are both classified as young adult books and are very good reads. I'm wondering why I didn't have books like this when I was a "young adult" a very long time ago. I remember mostly romances and classics being available in our local neighborhood library. I have read a lot of good young adult books in the last few years.
