Salt to the SeaTitle: Salt to the Sea
Author: Ruta Sepetys
Publication Date: February 2, 2015
Genre: Historical fiction

The author of Between Shades of Gray returns to WWII in this epic novel that shines a light on one of the war's most devastating—yet unknown—tragedies.
In 1945, World War II is drawing to a close in East Prussia, and thousands of refugees are on a desperate trek toward freedom, almost all of them with something to hide. Among them are Joana, Emilia, and Florian, whose paths converge en route to the ship that promises salvation, the Wilhelm Gustloff. Forced by circumstance to unite, the three find their strength, courage, and trust in each other tested with each step closer toward safety.

Just when it seems freedom is within their grasp, tragedy strikes. Not country, nor culture, nor status matter as all ten thousand people aboard must fight for the same thing: survival.

A visual representation of me when I saw this book:

Ok but seriously, Between Shades of Gray is one of my all-time favorite books, and Out of the Easy is also a very beloved book (gahh those reviews are so old), so when I saw this title on Goodreads, I was absolutely ecstatic. I'm hoping I could get an ARC of this book, but if not, I'll be so ready to buy this book the day it releases,

Yup, that's how much hope I have for Ruta Sepetys's book. I just know her book will not disappoint.
