One of her favorite ten teen books that deal with remembering, forgetting and flashbacks, as told to the Guardian:
The Book Thief by Markus ZusakRead about another title on Appelhans's list.
In this modern classic, Liesel is the titular book thief, hungry for the power of words during second world war-era Germany. Zusak employs Death as a narrator and uses a non-linear structure, flashing back and forward through Liesel's story to create tension and suspense. One of my all-time favourites.
The Book Thief also appears among Kathryn Erskine's top 10 first person narratives.
