Book Thief

I break into rich peoples’ houses to steal their books. I don’t earn enough to buy good books and the public library is a dilapidated shack. Politicians have made a mess of our country. We are not good enough to be called third world. We are fourth or fifth world.

I always leave a note at the houses I rob. The note always says: “Sorry for stealing your books but I need to educate my daughter. She is a genius that will bring prosperity to our country.”
