He said to give it to you when you were ready......
When everyone on Himmel street is in the Fiedlers basement shelter during an air raid, death narrarates, "When she turned to page two, it was Rudy who noticed. He paid direct attention to what Liesel was reading, and he tapped his brother and sisters, telling them to do the same. Hans Hubermann came closer and called out, and soon, a quietness tarted bleeding through the crowded basement" (Zusak 381).
Are you ok Hubermann?
Crucified Christ! His neck is broken!!!
When the Nazis make the Jews parade through Molching, death tells, "The Jew stood before him, expecting another handful or derision, but he watched with everyone else as Hans Hubermann held his hand out and presented a piece of bread, like magic" (Zusak 394).
You can really write Liesel. I think you should have this.
When Liesel and Rosa are at thier house after an air raid, Rosa says, "She said, I think you've always been ready Liesel. From the moment you arrived here, clinging to that gate, you were meant to have this. Rosa gave her the book. The cover looked like this: *** The Word Shaker *** A small collection of thoughts for Liesel Meminger" (Zusak 443).
I finally finished writing it! The Book, a small story by Liesel Meminger. Wow!
When the truck that Hans Hubermann and the rest of his LSE unit is on rolls over, death states, "The Damage, Essen. Six men burned by cigarettes. Two broken hands. Several broken fingers. A broken leg for Hans Hubermann. A broken neck for Reinhold Zucker, snapped almost in line with his earlobes" (Zusak 476).
When Liesel opens the door and finds Ilsa Hermann on the porch, Ilsa says, "She reached into her bag and pulled out a small black book. Inside was not a story, but lined paper. I thought if you're not going to read any more of my books, you might like to write one instead" (Zusak 523).
After the LSE pulled Liesel out of the house, Liesel asks, "What's happened? Liesel asked. Is this still Himmel street? Yes. The man had disappointed eyes. What had he seen these past few years? This is Himmel. You got bombed, my girl" (Zusak 533).
