I can almost guarantee that I will love anything that Ruta Sepetys writes!!! That is why I cannot wait for her newest YA novel to come out this February!  I really appreciate how she is able to accurately create an atmosphere that fits the time period she is talking about but also make the reader empathize so deeply with an individual story.

That is why I am especially excited to read Salt to the Sea, which depicts the lives of several different characters who are trying to escape the horrors of WWII on the same boat.  Despite the tragedy these characters have already faced, they must face additional torment aboard the boat that is meant to bring them salvation.  It sounds so heartbreaking with the potential to be uplifting at times, describing the stories of those who are not mentioned in history books.

 

Salt to the Sea comes out February 2nd, 2016 and is published by Philomel Books.
