In “Between The Shades Of Grey”, the setting in in a camp with small cabins, with small straw beds inside. Lina, her mom, and her brother have to work for people because they got taken from their house and separated from their dad.
When Lina’s family was living happily in their home, some NKVD officers took them. The officers put them on a very long 6 week train ride with no food, and only some rain water when it rained. When it was over, everyone got sent to very small cabins with straw beds and has to work for people. They only got a small bit of bread when they worked all day. The officers we’re mean and hard on them and spoke German. The people working would get killed if they misbehave.
What I love about this book is that Lina’s family stayed strong and smart. They made friends, helped each other out, and celebrated together on holidays. Lina mom was very giving and caring. She helped everyone and shared her food and goods she got. I don’t like the NKVD officers. They didn’t care about anyone, and made people work on holidays. They didn’t hesitate to kill anyone who did anything wrong.
I think this book is really interesting and entertaining to read and I recommend it.
Thanks for reading!
