Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Don't confuse this book with the other "Shades of Grey" book.

It is 1941 and fifteen year old Lina, her young brother and mother get separated from her father when Soviet officers barge into their house and force them into a crowded dirty train car to begin a horrid journey to a work camp. This book is reminiscent of The Book Thief. It does an amazing job or capturing this horrific period in history
