'Few books are beautifully written, fewer still are important; this novel is both.' --The Washington Post

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?

A moving and haunting novel perfect for readers of The Book Thief.

The book was a slow listen. The Story jump back-and-forth between past and present in a jarring manner that I found disruptive. The characters , especially the mother, Seemed extremely childish and simple in the way they were portrayed by the author and made worse only by the narrator with a whiny high-pitched child like voice.

Absolutely beautiful book. I’ve read tons of WW2 stories and this is one story and perspective I never knew about. Heartbreaking and astounding story of survival.
