Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys
This book was set during World War II and was about a group of refugees, from different countries, trying to make their way to the Baltic Sea to freedom. Historical fiction with splashes of authenticity. The characters are so unique and play such different parts in the story line but it all comes together beautifully. As soon as I finished this book, it went on my 2017 favorites list, it was that good. I will warn you that it has it's heart wrenching moments and I was brought to tears a few times in the story. I highly recommend this book to everyone. This is a must read.
