Liesel continues to write letters to her mother, but she has mailed only the first one, though. Her birthday comes. Rosa is still losing washing and ironing jobs and Hans is out of tobacco, so Liesel doesn't expect to receive a birthday present. She doesn't. She gives herself a present, though, by taking some of the washing money and mailing her letters in one group. Rosa finds out and hits her with a spoon, after which Liesel admits why she used the money. At that moment, Liesel realizes she'll never see her mother again.
