Salt to the SeaSalt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ruta Sepetys has a particular writing style that I thoroughly enjoy. Salt to the Sea took me on a unknown journey through history without being bogged down with lots of small details. If you like a fiction book based on an historical event then this is for you. The four characters which switched between being the storyteller were all different and with individual goals, and I found myself just wishing and hoping for a happy ending. I did cry and by the end was feeling sad, melancholic and even a bit hopeless – the fact that this story was based on a true event was just a reminder of what our world can be like. The tiny glimmer of hope at the very end was also enough to make me cry again, not all was lost.
