Her award-winning book Between Shades of Gray tells the story of a Lithuanian family living an ordinary life until Soviet officers invade their home, force them into a crowded train and enslave them at a Siberian work camp. The story is told through the eyes of 15-year-old Lina, who finds solace in her art and documents the events by drawing. Risking everything, she imbeds clues in her drawings of their location and secretly passes them along, hoping her drawings will make their way to her father's prison camp.
You can find a copy of her book Between Shades of Gray at your local library or order it through our Mail Order Library here. You can also find her other books at our libraries.
