A story of friendship set in WWII between a female pilot and a female spy. It's told in such a gripping way that each page pulled me along despite the backdrop and circumstance.

A story of friendship set in WWII between a female pilot and a female spy. The story is full of twists and turns, and while bad things happened in the book, I didn't feel like it was told in a gratuitous manner.

The Firebird Thorndike Press Large Print Superior Collection.

Lina is just like any other fifteen-year-old Lithuanian girl in 1941. She paints, she draws, she gets crushes on boys. Until one night when Soviet officers barge into her home, tearing her family from the comfortable life they've known. Separated from her father, forced onto a crowded and dirty train car, Lina, her mother, and her young brother slowly make their way north, crossing the Arctic Circle, to a work camp in the coldest reaches of Siberia. Here they are forced, under Stalin's orders, to dig for beets and fight for their lives under the cruelest of conditions.Lina finds solace in her art, meticulously - and at great risk - documenting events by drawing, hoping these messages will make their way to her father's prison camp to let him know they are still alive. It is a long and harrowing journey, spanning years and covering 6,500 miles, but it is through incredible strength, love, and hope that Lina ultimately survives. Between Shades of Gray is a novel that will steal your breath and capture your heart.

This book follows the life of Lena’s family and other families when they were hauled away by the Soviet secret police. They are thrown into a cattle car en route to Siberia. Lina and her family are separated from her father and in order to reach his prison camp, she passes along clues in the form of drawings. But will that be enough to be reunited again?

“Sure, we were safe. Safe in the arms of hell.”

I don’t have a lot to say about this book because I just can’t. This book left me speechless. It was so fascinating how Ruta Sepetys wrote a tragic story to let us know the truth about the crimes of Stalin. I don’t even know how those people survived such terrible things, but as Ruta said, they had love and they survived through love. Not just love in a romantic way, it was love for a lot of things, especially their families.

I was hooked with the story since the first chapter. Ruta’s writing is beautiful, and even though this isn’t a love story (for me), it was beautiful in its own way. I liked how those people did almost the impossible to survive, to feed their children, to find their lost ones. There was sorrow, pain, suffering, loss, love but most important, there was hope. Every single death touched my heart, and when I read this book I had to hold my tears because if I started crying, I wouldn’t stop.

“Evil will rule until good men or women choose to act.”

As soon as I finished this I didn’t know what to do. You know, after reading such a tragic story is very hard to forget about it, to just pretend you didn’t read that ugly side of history… of humanity. History teachers should give this book to their students because I think is extremely important to know this side of the story… to know the truth. I know this is a story of fictional characters, but what makes it important is that this story reflects the true story that took the lives of 20 millions of innocent people, and that’s a LOT of people. I’m pretty sure most of us didn’t know this side of the story, and also we think our history classes failed us, but know you can educate yourself thanks to Ruta Sepetys.

I don’t encourage people to read this book because it is pretty or happy, because it isn’t. I encourage people because this story is important. It’s not always easy to write such a serious topic for young adults but I think Ruta did it and captured it perfectly.
I'm writing this review with a heavy heart, this book was hard for me to get through. Not because it was bad by any means it was one of the most beautiful books I've read in along time. It was hard for me because of how heart breaking and devastating it was. I went from hope to sadness to anger constantly throughout my time reading this book. At one point in time I had to put it down because of how broken and devastated I was for Lina, her family and the thousands of people who lost their lives or lost someone during this ugly time period. I still cannot believe that these events actually happened. I cannot believe that people were forced to endure these conditions because they were helping their families or teaching or just living their normal lives. It's sick that they were treated this way. I want to sob for these people I want to hug these people, I want to mourn for these people. I just want to continue reading books like these so that their stories don't die with them. I'm so sorry that they had to live these events. I admire their bravery, I admire their will to go on because I know for a fact that not everyone could have done that. It's incredible. I'm so glad I got to experience this book. Well done Ruta Sepetys. Thank you for taking the time to give these people voices and for finally allowing them to have their stories told the way it was supposed to.
This is a story about sacrifice, perseverance, survival, courage and hope.

During World War II, many Lithuanians lost their precious families and were forced to abandon their beloved homes. Their stories were told as they were seen, experienced and recorded by a fifteen year old Lithuanian girl, Lina. Lina's youth and homeland were stolen from her by Stalin's reign of terror.

Along with countless other Lithuanians, Lina and her family were abruptly removed from their beautiful and peaceful homes and sent on a harrowing and dehumanizing trip with the final destination being a Siberian prison camp. This book beautifully told the stories of some of the survivors and victims.

Lina, Jonas and Andrius cared for each other, protected one another and managed to scrape up little joys and small reasons to smile and hope. These actions and traits allowed them to persevere and survive.

The characters, both main and supportive, were multi dimensional and well developed.

Between Shades Of Gray is another story which needed to be told, experienced and remembered.
“My art teacher had said that if you breathed deeply and imagined something, you could be there. You could see it, feel it. During our standoffs with the NKVD, I learned to do that. I clung to my rusted dreams during the times of silence. It was at gunpoint that I fell into every hope and allowed myself to wish from the deepest part of my heart. Komorov thought he was torturing us, but we were escaping into a stillness within ourselves. We found strength there.”

I kept pausing when I’d find myself thinking of my friend Kelli’s words while reading “Beneath Shades of Gray:” “My heart is broken.” And break my heart this quiet little story did. Words, other than Kelli’s, fail me. Having had a friend whose grandfather lived through this period, this place and time, I still had no real idea of what atrocities were committed, endured. I tried to go back to reading something else this morning and closed that book. I can’t bring myself to take those other words in just yet. While this is a fictional account, the atrocities were real.

It will, hopefully, take me some time before I find myself getting upset over my charger for my laptop shooting sparks enough so my laptop remained uncharged for the last several days. As it was, I managed to get a new charger ordered with a few clicks on my phone and problem solved. Truly, there are much worse things in life than we even want to think about. Or, to borrow thoughts from Kelli again, “lucky, lucky, lucky.”
