Less than bests
Wow, not much comes to mind? Read this book!
All things considered...
Yes, this book will be hard to read at times. Any book with this much suffering and needless pain ought to be disturbing to the reader. Yet Sepetys highlights the beauty and strength of the human spirit in characters like Lina, who never ceases struggling to survive and overcome the Soviets' oppression.
