Before The Book Thief, Markus Zusak wrote a trilogy of gritty, funny, and at times heart-breaking novels about the Wolfe brothers: The Underdog<, Fighting Ruben Wolfe, and Getting the Girl.

Cameron Wolfe is the quiet one in his family, not a soccer star like his brother Steve or a charming fighter with a new girl every week like his brother Rube. Cam would give anything to be near one of those girls, to love her and treat her right. He especially likes Rube's latest, Octavia, with her brilliant ideas and bright green eyes. But what woman like that would want a loser like him? Maybe Octavia would, Cam discovers. Maybe he'd even have something to say. And those maybes change everything: winning, loving, losing, the Wolfe brothers, and Cameron himself.

Fans of The Book Thief won't want to miss reading the novels that launched Markus Zusak's stellar career.

    " This is the sequel to FIGHTING RUBEN WOLFE, and while I don't think it's quite as good as the first one, it's still pretty great. I know this will sound sacrilegeous to BOOK THIEF fans, but I actually like this book just as well as that one. They're pretty much tied for my personal 3rd place Zusak book. 4 1/2 stars. "

    " I have mixed feelings about this book. I love some of Zusak's other books, so I decided to give this a try. You can tell this is an earlier book because, while I still love his writing style and his creative figurative language, it seemed a lot more forced in this book. I love the portrayal of a family and the bond that siblings share, and I really love the plot. This is a great young adult book with a unique and surprisingly strong protagonist, but I could see how some might see it as over the top, with each character really being a caricature of someone that we know. I can't help it though, I still really liked it. "

    " When dogs cry by Markus Zusak is a beautiful, poetical book about some of the harder things in life. Cameron Wolfe is a 'lonely bastard' who prowls the streets of Sydney. He doesn't fit in anywhere, even his family thinks he is a loser. Then he meets Octavia and she sees in him something no one else does and helps him realize some of his dreams. About family, love and life it is up to Zusak's usual high standards. "
