I was lucky enough to meet Ruta Sepetys last night, and she very kindly signed my spare UK proof (ARC) copy of her debut novel Between Shades of Gray so I could give it away here on my blog. I'm a fan of anything YA WWII-related and I absolutely loved this book, as did the New York Times - it debuted at #8 on their list yesterday!
Here's more info from Amazon UK:
One night fifteen-year-old Lina, her mother and young brother are hauled from their home by Soviet guards, thrown into cattle cars and sent away. They are being deported to Siberia. An unimaginable and harrowing journey has begun. Lina doesn’t know if she’ll ever see her father or her friends again. But she refuses to give up hope. Lina hopes for her family. For her country. For her future. For love - first love, with the boy she barely knows but knows she does not want to lose... Will hope keep Lina alive?
