Between Shades Of Gray Book ReviewTuesday, October 25, 2011 By Nickohl Steenberg
Between Shades Of Gray, Ruta Sepetys, The Penguin Group, 344 pages. Historical Fiction. Between Shades Of Gray is the story of a young lady’s struggle while being forced to be in a labor camp along with her mother, brother, and other people in her community. The story is written very passionately and it flows well. Sepetys’ uses flashbacks to tie into Lina’s new life in the labor camps and show us how much of a struggle everybody was actually going through.This book a very captivating piece. It is full of emotion and adventure. While reading this the author’s style actually put me in thee main character (Lina’s) shoes. As I read each page, I was anxious to see where Septeys would take the story line. I suggest this to anybody who likes well-written plot lines with cliffhangers that will leave you on the edge of your seat wanting to talk to someone about it.
