I just finished The Book Thief, and I cried about three times in the last fifty pages. I don't remember the last time a book made me cry. Why did I care so much? Because I loved the characters. Liesel, Hans, Rosa, and Rudy! Poor Rudy.
I would love to write a book worthy of a cry one day.
Until then, here's a cool video I got from an awesome blog.
