    Lina is just like any other 15-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.

    Story
    If you could sum up Between Shades of Gray in three words, what would they be?

    Gripping, revealatory, thoughtchanger!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main young lady


    What about Emily Klein’s performance did you like?

    Such a great speaker


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Seeing their fathers face looking up at them from under the train, the forgotten loaf of bread, so many others...


    Any additional comments?

    I feel like it was me that lived through it....I'd listen on my 35 minute commute everyday, sat in the car at lunch, at home, in the coffee shop and when it was over-THEN I could take a breath.....
