Between Shades of Gray is an amazing book that is not for the faint of heart. In this story Lina and her family are part of the Russian Gulag, Lina and her family are are forced out of their home and transported to a slave labor camp where they have to live in horrible conditions. Though their situation seems grim, though they manage to survive with death everywhere and having little food and being split up with their dad. This book in extremely sad and contains graphic imagery.
