Please Watch This Video for Between Shades of Gray

Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys is one of those stories that really NEEDS to be told. 
Please take the time to watch the following video. I promise you it will be worth it. It will make you feel and it just may change your life.



In 1941, fifteen-year-old Lina, her mother, and brother are pulled from their Lithuanian home by Soviet guards and sent to Siberia, where her father is sentenced to death in a prison camp while she fights for her life, vowing to honor her family and the thousands like hers by burying her story in a jar on Lithuanian soil. Based on the author’s family, includes a historical note.

I picked up two copies during the SIBA Trade Show in Daytona Beach last month -- I cannot wait to read this one, too! Definitely a story that needs to be read over and over and over again.
