New York Times Bestseller and winner of the Carnegie Medal!"e;Masterfully crafted"e;The Wall Street JournalFor readers ofBetween Shades of Grayand All the Light We Cannot See, Ruta Sepetysreturns to WWII in this epic novel thatshines a light on one of the war's most devastatingyet unknowntragedies.World War II is drawing to a close in East Prussia and thousands of refugees are on a desperate trek toward freedom, many with something to hide.Among them areJoana, Emilia, and Florian, whose paths converge en route to theship that promises salvation, the Wilhelm Gustloff. Forced by circumstance to unite, the three find their strength, courage, and trust in each other testedwith each step closer to safety. Just when it seems freedom is within their grasp, tragedy strikes. Notcountry, nor culture, nor status matter as all ten thousand peopleadults and children alikeaboard must fight for the same thing: survival.Told in alternating points of view and perfect for fans of Anthony Doerr's Pulitzer Prize-winningAll the Light We Cannot See, Erik Larson'sDead Wake, and Elizabeth Wein's Printz Honor BookCode Name Verity, this masterful work of historical fiction is inspired by the real-life tragedy that was the sinking of theWilhelm Gustloffthe greatest maritime disaster in history. As she did inBetween Shades of Gray, Ruta Sepetys unearths a shockingly little-known casualty of a gruesome war, and proves that humanity and love can prevail, even in the darkest of hours.Praise forSalt to the Sea:Featured on NPR's Morning Edition "e;Superlative...masterfully crafted...[a] powerful work of historical fiction."e;The Wall Street Journal "e;[Sepetys is] a master of YA fictionshe once again anchors a panoramic view of epic tragedy in perspectives that feel deeply textured and immediate."e;Entertainment Weekly "e;Riveting...powerful...haunting."e;The Washington Post "e;Compelling for both adult and teenage readers."e;New York Times Book Review "e;Intimate, extraordinary, artfully crafted...brilliant."e;Shelf Awareness "e;Historical fiction at its very, very best."e;The Globe and Mail"e;[H]aunting, heartbreaking, hopeful and altogether gorgeous...one of the best young-adult novels to appear in a very long time."e;Salt Lake Tribune *"e;This haunting gem of a novel begs to be remembered."e;Booklist *"e;Artfully told and sensitively crafted...will leave readers weeping."e;School Library Journal A PW and SLJ 2016 Book of the YearPraise for Between Shades of Gray:A New York TimesNotable Book AWall Street JournalBest Children's Book APW,SLJ, Booklist, and KirkusBest Book iTunes 2011 Rewind Best Teen Novel A Carnegie Medal andWilliam C.
