This book was absolutely amazing. I've always found fictional world war two stories very generic, but Lina's was original and gave a new perspective on the war and who else was effected. Ruta's writing is so vivid and emotional it is hard to believe these words were not written by a real Lina Vilkas. She is a great antagonist, she has a strong personality that is reflected in her art. I also loved how the flashbacks were placed. They were placed at the exact right moments that made them flow with the story. This a work of genius. ( )

Devastating. Sepetys has crafted a beautiful novel about an ugly event. I have a degree in history and I was unaware of the atrocities carried out against the Baltic states during and after WWII. This story deeply affected me and it feels like an important work. I hope works such as this prevent anything as awful as the deportation from occurring again. I do not know what else to add when words feel so inadequate in response to horrible, horrible events. Lina, Elena, and the several other characters are inspiring and I'm mourning for all the tortured Lithuanians who experienced the events depicted in Between Shades of Gray. ( )

The saddest part of this book is that few no the truth behind the story. I personally grew up learning about what the soviets had done. After I turned eight I was allowed to read whatever I wanted in our house and the one I started with was [b:God Knows My Size!: Silvia Tărniceriu|332532|God Knows My Size! Silvia Tărniceriu |Harvey Yoder|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1387739889l/332532._SX50_.jpg|323071]. When I was eleven we had Russia studies and I read more. We watched some movies.
It's books like this that make books like [b:They Called Us Enemy|42527866|They Called Us Enemy|George Takei|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1541125895l/42527866._SX50_.jpg|66245778], seem really stupid. Yes, the USA had problems with racist mistrust, but even at our worst, we've not had a history of being that bad. ( )

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 it isn't as known. Anyways, the Lithuanian people in the story were taken from their homes and loaded into railroad cars. Many died during the trip. It was horrible. They went to work camps. Some ended up in Siberia freezing to death. Parts are heartbreaking. It focuses a lot on the relationships between the people, not just all the horrible stuff that happened. ( )

Incredible writing coupled with moving characters and a historical story that is one we should never forget. What the people of the 1940's suffered through was hardship that someone like me will never have to experience, but, as stated, should never forget. This story was so captivating I finished it in two days. Go read it. ( )

Hope Morrison (The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, May 2011 (Vol. 64, No. 9))
This harrowing novel recalls the systematic deportation of thousands of Lithuanians following the Soviet invasion of their country in 1939. Fifteen-year-old Lina, along with her mother and younger brother, is taken during the night and shipped off on a freight car for a six-week journey to a labor camp in Siberia. After spending nearly a year there, her family is again deported, this time to a frigid outpost in the northernmost region of Siberia, where survival seems unlikely. Conditions in the camps are horrendous, with inmates forced to perform hard labor in exchange for bread rations and denied the basic necessities of warmth, shelter, and sanitation. Abuse at the hands of the NKVD (Soviet police) is abundant, and horrific acts of violence punctuate the narrative. A talented artist, Lina draws for an outlet—; more importantly, she creates pictures full of coded information that she hopes will somehow get to her father, who is suspected to be in a Soviet prison. Lina’s voice offers a careful balance of emotional engagement and factual summary, providing a compelling account of this seldom-told chapter of history. The novel provides a testament to the power of community, as the deportees keep one another strong through the most traumatic events and hold on to their will to survive in the direst of survival situations. Readers will want to know more at the end, since an epilogue suggests that Lina survived and returned to Lithuania but leaves many questions unanswered; ultimately, however, this is a powerful story that deserves extensive reading and discussion. An author’s note, encouraging readers to learn more about the events in the book, is included. Review Code: R -- Recommended. (c) Copyright 2006, The Board of Trustees of the University of Illinois. 2011, Philomel, 344p., $17.99. Grades 8-12.

Judy Brink-Drescher (VOYA, April 2011 (Vol. 34, No. 1))
Up until the night the Russian military pounded on her door, fifteen-year-old Lina lived a nearly idyllic life. She had recently been accepted to a prestigious art school and was told she had a very promising future. Now, men speaking a strange language are telling her mother that the family is being deported from their Lithuanian homeland. Without knowing the precise whereabouts of their father, Lina, her mother, and brother soon find themselves packed into a cattle car with many other frightened countrymen. With the help of sixteen-year-old Andrius, Lina discovers her father is on the same train but bound for a different destination. She decides to document all she can in images so he can find them later. Unbeknownst to anyone, many would not survive this trip, and those that did would end up in Siberian labor camps. It was also under these circumstances that Lina and Andrius discover the true meaning of family, love, and loss. In the shadow of the Holocaust, many might be unfamiliar with Stalin’s orchestrated genocide of the Baltic States. The first deportations began in 1941; many were unable to return to their homeland until the mid-1950s. Sepetys’s father and many of her relatives were among those who either managed to escape into refugee camps or were deported or imprisoned. In her debut novel, Sepetys offers both a compelling love story and a well-researched historical chronicle. The themes throughout this novel are mature, and therefore the book is recommended for high school and above. VOYA CODES: 4Q 3P S (Better than most, marred only by occasional lapses; Will appeal with pushing; Senior High, defined as grades 10 to 12). 2011, Philomel, 352p., $17.99. Ages 15 to 18.
