  1. My vote, even though I don't get one, is for Shades of Gray!

  2. I loved Between Shades of Gray too.

  3. I'm torn. Daughter of Smoke and Bone feeds my fantasy soul, but Between Shades of Gray is such a great historical fiction that tells a Holocaust survivor story not yet told.


I look forward to your comments and interactions! Join in the conversation.
