Between Shades of Gray

 

Between Shades of Gray

Between Shades of Gray
by Ruta Sepetys

 

“Have you ever wondered what a human life is worth? That morning, my brother’s was worth a pocket watch.”


This is the world in which fifteen-year-old Lina is living in in 1941. She is preparing for art school, first dates, and all that summer has to offer when the Soviet secret police barge violently into her home, deporting her, her mother, and younger brother to Siberia. Lina's father has been separated from the family and sentenced to death in a prison camp. Her life was just beginning and now all is lost.


Lina fights for her life and, vows that if she survives, she will document their experience in her art and writing to honor her family, and the thousands like them.


Between Shades of Gray is a riveting novel that captures your heart, keeps you reading late into the night, and reveals the miraculous endurance of the human spirit.
