Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Thank you, publishers, for sending an ARC of this book to me. I loved her Between Shades of Gray, but felt that Out of the Easy was a step down from it. But now Sepetys is on the upturn again!
This is historical fiction at its best--the kind that could be used in a classroom. The suffering and starvation feels SO real. But the hope feels real, too. Read this for a snippet of what 1945 was like in a part of Europe that you don't know much about--so, so good.
