“Have you ever wondered what a human life is worth? That morning, my brother’s was worth a pocket watch.”
– Between Shades of Gray, Ruta Sepetys

This story is so emotional. Of course it is. It’s a holocaust story. Why do I do this to myself? Simple. To remind myself that I have it better than my whiny ass puts off. It could be worse, so much worse.

Usually I read books about the Jewish side of WWII. This time, it was about a Lithuanian girl. I rarely heard about this part of the the war growing up. It was always Hitler, holocaust, Jewish people, concentration camps. I didn’t learn a whole lot about Stalin, Russian…

The edjumucation sistum is awsum in West Virjina is umazing.

This was a beautiful story simply because it was about heartache, struggle and tragedy. If you were to take that part out, not much is there. I didn’t really like the characters, even Lina, the main protagonist. So that’s why I took a star off. Still, it’s definitely worth reading. I plan to read the other side of the story, Salt to the Sea, as well. It is about Lina’s cousin, Joana. Maybe she will be more likable.
