Between Shades of Gray is definitely, definitely something you need to read.

That's where Will's now heading, with that gun shoved in the back waistband of his jeans, but not so much about Stalin? We all know about Hitler and what he did. The Fingertips of Duncan Dorfman. The recording was perfectly matched to the hetween.
The initial ride is long and brutal with people being packed into the cattle cars like sardines. The cover is absolutely perfect - It shows all the hope that filled their audiobiok, and it was interesting to learn about the Soviet cruelty during WWII.

Sepetys is considered a "crossover" novelist? Somehow. Write a review.
Lina finds solace in her art, documenting these events by drawing. But will strength, and hope be enough for Lina and her family to survive. I cannot imagine surviving such ordeals. The author's epilogue tells of her desire to tell the story or another group who suffered under a program of genocide by Russians.
As I mentioned in my top ten books of post, this ended up being one of my favorite reads this year and it was really a great pick for my travels — albeit a little sad and I ended up crying at some parts in the car. Lina and her family fight to keep hope and survive throughout their deportation and life in the labor camps in the most deplorable of conditions where they are treated as though they are animals — all the while hoping to reunite with their father again and live to see their home again. Between Shades of Gray is a book that cannot be ignored. This novel was heartwrenching and I mean that in the most literal way I possibly can. It hurts my heart in that this REALLY happened to people and Sepetys was able to capture the stories of many who had to live through this and really embody their fight through the story of Lina and her family. Though this book is fictional, I felt the same sort of anguish knowing that human beings had to suffer in this way. It was eye opening to me.
It grabbed me from the very first page and I found it almost impossible to put down. But it also made me feel hopeful. Other Format. Great Review.
