Between Shades of Gray
Author: Ruta Sepetys

Fifteen-year-old Lina is a Lithuanian girl living an ordinary life—until Soviet officers invade her home and tear her family apart, sending Lina, her mother, and brother to a Siberian work camp. Risking everything, she imbeds clues in 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?
