In my personal opinion I love Rudy. I think that he really does have Liesel’s best interest at heart and really does want nothing but the best for her. Although he might have a crush on her he really does love her as a friend. And you can tell that he always does everything that he can to protect her. Rudy should really be appreciated more by Liesel because there is nothing that he wouldn’t do for him. Rudy really is selfless and he would do anything for Liesel. Everyone needs a friend like Rudy, and when you have one make sure that you appreciate them.
