An International Bestseller
A Carnegie Medal Nominee
Fifteen-year-old Lina is a Lithuanian girl living an ordinary life--until Soviet officers invade her home and tear her family apart. Separated from her father and forced onto a crowded train, Lina, her mother, and her young brother make their way to a Siberian work camp, where they are forced to fight for their lives. Lina finds solace in her art, documenting these events by drawing. Risking everything, she imbeds clues in her drawings of their location and secretly passes them along, hoping her drawings will make their way to her father's prison camp. But will strength, love, and hope be enough for Lina and her family to survive?
A moving and haunting novel for readers of The Book Thief

How would you feel if your world gets turned upside down?

Ruta Sepetys definitely has written one of the most important books in this year`s young adult fiction.
Told through the eyes of Lina, a teenage girl from Kaunas, Lithuania, Sepetys takes the reader on a trip to the darkest chapters in russian history: the deportation and the killing of 20 million lithuanians.
Although having to cope with various circumstances, Lina still refuses to give up hope.

Anyone who liked David Benioff`s "City of thieves" will also love "Between shades of gray". There are very few books that are as intense as this one.
