    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.

    Compelling and hard to put down.

    The story was told from multiple perspectives and was hard to put down. It told of a little known aspect of World War II; the desperation of the civilian population in Eastern Prussia/Poland to escape the Russian army who were encircling them. While the characters were fictional, the history was accurate and thoroughly researched. This is the second book by Rita Sepetys that I’ve read and I love her writing style and the history that she brings to life. I will be reading her third book and eagerly awaiting her next efforts.

    Salt to the sea

    This book was perfect. It was such sad story but fantastic. I have no idea how this can be but it was just sooooo good. It is now oneof my favorite historical fiction books.
