Between shades of grey is by: Ruta Sepetys. This book is about a family who gets taken away by the NKVD officers, which take them away to a German camp. They are there because they are Jewish! During the whole book, you will see how they live at the camp and how they struggle to stay alive. I recommend this book to all readers who love World War ll or Holocaust books. Also, sad and depressing would also fall into the book. I also recommend this book because it is very descriptive! It gives lots of detail and i really think all middle-class readers will love it!!
