Lina is just like any other fifteen-year-old Lithuanian girl in 1941. She paints, she draws, she gets crushes on boys. Until one night when Soviet officers barge into her home, tearing her family from the comfortable life they've known. Separated from her father, forced onto a crowded and dirty train car, Lina, her mother, and her young brother slowly make their way north, crossing the Arctic Circle, to a work camp in the coldest reaches of Siberia. Here they are forced, under Stalin's orders, to dig for beets and fight for their lives under the cruelest of conditions.

Lina finds solace in her art, meticulously--and at great risk--documenting events by drawing, hoping these messages will make their way to her father's prison camp to let him know they are still alive. It is a long and harrowing journey, spanning years and covering 6,500 miles, but it is through incredible strength, love, and hope that Lina ultimately survives. Between Shades of Gray is a novel that will steal your breath and capture your heart.

Reflections in a Golden Eye by Carson McCullers

I'm about halfway through it and I'm really pleasantly surprised with it so far. I really enjoy her writing style.

^Ahh.... that's awesome! I've got a special fondness for Anne of Green Gables, its one of my favorite childhood books.

Currently reading.... Ordinary People by Judith Guest after reading the play Doubt: A Parable by John Patrick Shanley (which was amazing by the way, a really quick read, and several days later I'm still thinking about it).

^Unfortunately I didn't enjoy that one too much.

I am currently re-reading "Great Expectations" (Charles Dickens) for the xxx time...
