Between Shades of Gray: The Graphic Novel

Between Shades of Gray: The Graphic Novel

by Ruta Sepetys

Also available via Overdrive: https://bit.ly/3waDvyW

“They took me in my nightgown.” Lina’s opening statement is as haunting in this graphic novel adaptation as in Sepetys’ novel highlighting Russia’s genocide of the Lithuanian people alongside World War II Europe. A perfect companion read for fans of Art Spiegelman’s Maus or the graphic novel adaptation of Anne Frank's Diary, this story follows Lina’s family as they and thousands more are packed into freight trains and shipped to Siberian work camps. Stunning watercolor panels illustrate Lina’s story as she endures both human cruelty and a harsh climate. Lina’s sketches add a layer of artistic depth with their hidden messages serving as symbols of hope and survival.
