Salt to the Sea

Thanks to NetGalley and Philomel Books, (Penguin Group), for the advanced reading copy of Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys!  This historical fiction story contains many points of view.  Many aspects of World War II are told throughout the book as refugees make their way to the ships that will take them to a safer place.  Ruta Sepetys places factual information at the end of her historical fiction books and I enjoy knowing what truly took place, how she accomplished her research and the list of the resources she used!  A great quote from Salt to the Sea, “Survival had its price: guilt.”  Definitely food for thought and one more problem the survivors had to live with and overcome.  Highly recommended for historical fiction readers!
