Salt to the Sea
Although the characters in this book are fictional, the event that it is leading to is very real, which makes the book all the more harrowing.
Like 'The Smell of other People's Houses', it's written from the perspective of four characters, three of which are likeable, the other you instantly take a dislike to. It's interesting that the characters are so different and from very different backgrounds, but that their lives are brought together through the experience of war.
The event that occurs is one I hadn't ever heard of before so this book gives a clear insight into the event. However, the horror of the war isn't softened in any way, so this isn't a book for the younger readers.
