    Beautiful, sad, compelling.

    4.5/5 stars. Salt to the Sea is beautiful, sad, and utterly compelling. I was gripped from page one, and I couldn't stop talking about it when I was forced to put it down. Sepetys's decision to write about the shockingly little-known sinking of the Wilhelm Gustloff (and horrifyingly tragic death of 9,000 people, making it the greatest maritime disaster of all time) through the lens of YA historical fiction is, in a word, brilliant. Everything about this story reeks of tragedy, but by focusing on the journey of four key young people, and even allowing us to cheer against all odds for a love story, infuses in the story a sense of hope; even in the darkest of times, human beings have an intrinsic need to seek happiness and find ways to love one another. That is profound, and communicated beautifully by Sepetys.

    Five heart-felt stars.... touched me deeply

    I finished this book several weeks ago and still think of the characters every day. I LOVED this book and didn't realize til after, that part of it is based on a true event from WWII. It touched me deeply and I couldn't put it down. If you liked All the Light We Cannot See, you will love this .
