Between Shades of Gray

I'm a huge fan of historical fiction and Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys is a satisfying addition to the genre.  Sepetys provides a gut wrenching account of Lina's capture, persistence, and survival as a Lithuanian during World War II.  This is an aspect of the war that is not often discussed, and in fact was a secret punishable by death for as long as the Soviet Union existed.  With historically based stories like this, who needs dystopian fiction?!?

                    …..just kidding, I'm a sucker for dystopian fiction!
