Between Shades of Gray- Ruta Sepetys

   This is a book that was in a magazine that "all ages should read." I tend to read whatever I want, even if it's a young adult or teen book. This book was fantastic.

    It's about a fifteen-year-old Lithuanian girl in 1941 and her story. How she, her mother and younger brother get uprooted from their home and sent to a "camp". It's such a heartbreaking story and it's pretty much about faith, love, and hope. Even though, they go through some pretty unbearable times, they always have hope and never give up. This story is so powerful and can really move you. It really makes you think of what all we take for granted on a daily basis. Now because this is toward a younger audience it was a very quick read. I got through this book in no time. Also, you just can't stand to put it down. It grips you and just doesn't let you go.
