Between Shades of Gray is by Ruta Sepetys. This is an amazing book! It is the story of a Lithuanian teenager and her family deported to a Siberian work camp by Stalin. This is a largely untold story about an amazing group of people from the Baltic states caught between the Russian Communists and the Nazi's. The author is the daughter of a Lithuanian refugee and this is a personal story that has needed to be told for a long time. Well done! A Reader's Corner Highly Recommended Read.
