While I was looking at reviews by other students in The Reading Eagles, I began to be very interested in Between Shades of Grey by Ruta Sepetys. Claire’s title was “Between Shades of Sorrow” which immediately got me wondering what this novel was about. I wanted to read the book after the first sentence. Claire put a string of adjectives at the beginning that told me right away that this book was placed in a depressing time period. I love how Claire put the theme of the book at the end of the review because it told me what the characters learned during their time in prison. I also want to read this book because I want to know if the family will be reunited with her dad. I really think I would have fun with this novel.
