An emotional story about a historical event I had little knowledge about. Most WWII fiction focuses on the jews and Germany but this one gives voice to the people of the Balkan region, suffering under Stalin's regime.
This book is not only important but also very well written with characters that, by the end, feel like family. Lina is a great protagonist, remaining strong and determined throughout heartbreaking events. ( )
  _Marcia_94_ | Sep 21, 2021 |
Though a fictional novel and written for a younger audience, this story is based on true events. 15-year-old Lina is a Lithuanian girl who, with her family, is ripped from her home without warning in 1941 by Soviet officers under the rule of Stalin. Lina, along with her mother and younger brother, are separated from her father, packed on train cars, and shipped off to Siberian work camps in brutal conditions. Lina, a budding young artist who had just been accepted to a prestigious art academy, makes drawings on any scraps she can find, passing these scraps along in the hopes that they can find their way to her father so that they can be reunited once again. But as WWII rages on in other parts of the world, Lina and her family, along with the other families ripped from their homes, must endure bitter cold, starvation, and disease, striving to maintain some hope that they can once again return to their previous lives.

There are so many books written about WWII, and it amazes me that every time I read one I learn about a new horror, not only in Germany, but in many other parts of the world as well. Told from this lesser-known viewpoint, one that many of us likely have minimal to no prior knowledge of, is both enlightening and horrifying. This would make a great middle school or high school read, but is excellent as an adult read as well. ( )

I feel like this is such an important story that needed to be told. This was so moving. It hurt my soul and I bawled my eyes out! ( )
  Completely_Melanie | Sep 10, 2021 |
Title and time of publication became a major problem in a school library due to the release of a very adult novel (never read by this reviewer). I loved this book and it was wonderful, but was often attacked by parents who thought it was the much talked about Fifty shades of gray. It is nothing like that! Print was held at MHS Library.

Fifteen-year-old Lina is a Lithuanian girl living an ordinary life - until Soviet officers invade her home and tear her family apart. Separated from her father and forced onto a crowded train, Lina, her mother, and her young brother make their way to a Siberian work camp, where they are forced to fight for their lives. Lina finds solace in her art, documenting these events by drawing. Risking everything, she imbeds clues in her drawings of their location and secretly passes them along, hoping her drawings will make their way to her father's prison camp. But will strength, love, and hope be enough for Lina and her family to survive? ( )

Actual Rating: 4.25 stars
Review: This was an amazing read. It was moving and powerful. The focus of the story, how life was affected by the Siberian work camps in 1941, is also such a unique placement and setting for WWII historical fiction. I definitely think that Sepetys has a way of writing WWII historical fiction that, while fitting in well with the genre, also stands out on its own apart from the rest of the genre. I definitely recommend this book. ( )

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.
