Michaela 'at the end of the book realized that I had not even given any of the characters faces. '.

Lol. I gave L- what the hell is her name? Black hair. That's about it

Multivitamin "Sent to live with a foster family because her mother cannot keep her (for reasons not completely described)."
Her mother was Jewish. It is said in the book. :)

Micah No, her parents were accused of being communists.

Mehar Bharatiya The relationships weren't forced at all, they were incredibly natural and realistic. The whole book was realistic. I mean, what do you expect? Liesel and Rudy to fall in love, and when he dies (sorry spoiler) for Liesel to kill herself? In reality, relationships aren't formed by dramas and sagas. There formed by common interests, and thats how Liesel makes relationships.

Sturgmom The mayor's son died in a war, presumably WWI. He was not a baby. The mayor's wife says he froze to death, and Death says that he died tangled in barbed wire-and likely frozen to death. (I know this is an old review, but I just finished the boom. And it's hard to take seriously a review in which the reader missed some relevant points in the story.)

Raeshantael Clay As stated earlier, her mother wasn't Jewish. If she were, according to custom, that would make Leisel and her brother Jewish and they'd be in hiding too.
