A moving and haunting novel for readers of The Book ThiefFifteen-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?This powerful tale of heartbreak and hope is sure to haunt readers long after they finish the last page.

5.0 Hallaaegade algus by Ruta Sepetys
It took me less than a day to read this book. It was such a sad and powerful story. I'm thankful that Ruta Sepetys has written it because I often have a feeling that people from other countries (in America and Western Europe) know quite well what Hitler did during the WW 2, but know a lot less about...

4.0 Between Shades of Gray
This story has tons of feels. It's about when Stalin was invading countries. The author's note speaks about how everyone knows of Hitler, but many don't know that Stalin was doing horrible things. Because of how Russia was communist until the 90's people weren't allowed to talk about it before so...

Raczej nie czytam książek o tego typu tematyce, ale nie żałuję że sięgnęłam po nią w bibliotece pod wpływem chwili. Wbiła się w moją pamięć i zmusiła do przemyśleń nad smutną historią naszą i prześladowanych narodów. W 1941 roku szesnastoletnia litwinka Lina zostaje zabrana z domu razem z matką i mł...
