The Book Thief

Summary
Analysis
That night Max flees the Hubermann house. He leaves Liesel a present hidden somewhere, and the family silently watches him walk away. Hans had arranged to meet Max by the Amper River in four days, but when Hans shows up Max isn't there. Instead he has left a note saying, "You've done enough."
Hans's unnecessary guilt now makes him send Max away, as the family looks suspicious after Hans's actions. Max also gives in to his guilt and finally decides to remove his dangerous presence from the house, but risks his own life to do so.
