Rating: ★★★★☆

This book is great. Lina and her family were in the Holocaust. Lina is from Lithuania. One night she was forced out of her home and was only able to take little with her. After an extremely long and uncomfortable train ride, she was taken to a labor camp. Lina, her family, and everyone at the camp was treated horribly. They didn’t have the basic necessities for survival. Because of that and the cruelty of the NKVD, many died. This book is incredible and will leave you with a new definition of horrible. A lot of awful things will happen in this book that will leave you wondering why, and feeling sorry for anyone who experienced the same torture as Lina.
