pdf ☆ Salt to the Sea ¿ Ruta Sepetys

Salt to the Sea ↠ War torn Germany Four young people Four dark secretsThey come from different lands but each of them is hunted and haunted by tragedy lies and warAs thousands of refugees flock to the coast desperate This swift footed kind hearted historical is intensely satisfying in just about all the ways a novel can be satisfying Without further ado here are five things you should know about it before picking it up1 A lot of times historical fiction shows its work As a history major I don't mind a research filled brick of a book but I'd think carefully about who I recommended it to Historical can be dense Salt to the Sea is not that book Sepetys chooses her word battles carefully for an incredibly fast read Short chapters elbow you and say read just one right? until the book is all gone2 I wanted to call this a thriller when I first started typing up this recommendation but the term's not uite right It's uite fast paced but THRILLER feels wrong it's not uite got that frantic electricity ADVENTURE is closer but still wrong Shouldn't there be jeeps and a comic relief side kick in an adventure? There's mostly just soldiers and frostbite and abandoned soup in this one which is not the same Nevertheless you should know it's not a depressing book although sad things happen in it3 The characters are lovely There are many of them all deftly and lightly drawn and because they come from all ages and backgrounds the dynamics between them are ever changing It's told from four points of view to allow the reader to spin around the story from all angles and because each of the POV characters brings something very different to the table this swapping of eyes is satisfying rather than frustrating 4 Sepetys has two other historicals out that I enjoyed a lot but this one has headed briskly to the top of the list it's confident and stylish in a way that is really satisfying to see5 This novel is the natural successor to Code Name Verity a character driven accessible YA historical with all the feels you could desire and enough research to bring down an elephant If elephants were brought down by research pdf ☆ Salt to the Sea ¿ Ruta Sepetys
