    Dark time in Lithuania told in `Shades of Gray'

    "Between Shades of Gray" (Philomel), by Ruta Sepetys: In 1941, the lives of 15-year-old Lina Vilkas, her brother and their mother are turned upside-down when they are forced from their home in the middle of the night. Deemed "enemies of the people," they are expelled from Lithuania and forced to work in a Soviet labor camp in Siberia, where prisoners are routinely starved, brutalized and killed.
