A moving and haunting novel for readers of The Book Thief.
Fifteen-year-old Lina is a Lithuanian girl living an ordinary
life--until Soviet officers invade her home and tear her family apart.
Separated from her father and forced onto a crowded train, Lina, her
mother, and her young brother make their way to a Siberian work camp,
where they are forced to fight for their lives. Lina finds solace in her
art, documenting these events by drawing. Risking everything, she
imbeds clues in her drawings of their location and secretly passes them
along, hoping her drawings will make their way to her father's prison
camp. But will strength, love, and hope be enough for Lina and her
family to survive?
