"Ashes in the Snow" by Ruta Sepetys

Ashes in the Snow by Ruta Sepetys is a work of historical fiction about when the Russians under orders from Stalin took people from Lithuania to Siberia and put them in a work-concentration camp.  The main characters are Lina--16-yr.-old girl, her brother Jonas and their mother.  Their father was taken separately!  The writing in this book is really good.  I got a real sense of what these people went through by reading this.  It was a good book to finish the year.
(Gerard's review, 5++ stars) 

Teaser from page 43:  Siberia?  That couldn't be right.  Siberia was half a world away.  There was nothing in Siberia.
