Review by Peggy, Central Library
Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys
Lina is a young teenager who endures deportation and other horrifying ordeals during World War II. She is taken by Soviets in Lithuania.
I picked it up because I never knew about Soviet deportation and cruelty towards citizens of the Baltic States and I was interested.
I finished it because Sepetys writes beautifully and the action never stops. I had to know what happened to the characters.
I'd recommend it to teens and up who like historical fiction.
Rated: 5 stars
