Liesel Meminger is a 10 year old girl, she lives in Germany with her foster parents, Hans and Rosa Hubermann. Liesel and her brother were both supposed to live with Hans and Rosa, but on the way there Liesel’s brother died. So they buried her brother,  then there was a book in the snow so Liesel picked up and took it. When she got to the foster home she didn’t want to get out of the car,  I think it Hans got her to get out. Rosa wanted her to take a bath but she didn’t want to I say she was being stubborn, eventually she took a bath 2 weeks later. Liesel couldn’t read so she had to go to a lower grade, Liesel isn’t very smart. Rudy Steiner was about 10 and lived in Germany, with his father and mother. Rudy had blue eyes and blond hair, he wants to be Jesse owns and he dressed up like Jesse Owens and put stuff on to make him black, then his dad got mad. Rudy’s dads name is Alex Steiner. Alex is described to be wooden, he is in the Nazi party because it is good for his business, and he does it to provide for his family, he doesn’t hate Jews but he does it for those two reasons. There is other characters like Rosa, Hans and others.There is not a lot of characters in the book so far, but there is some my favorite characters are Liesel Meminger, and Rudy Steiner.
