Rudy is somebody who a lot of girls would say is the sweetest guy in the world. He gives without hesitation and stands up for what he believes in regardless of the consequences. I think Liesel learns this from him. Liesel finally realizes, a little too late, that she loves him (hence the kiss). For much of the book, Liesel isn't too sure how her coming of age feelings fit Rudy but she knows he is special.
