Salt to the Sea

I am currently reading Salt to the Sea. It's impossible to put it down. In my opinion it's very well constructed. The characters all have back stories which the author keeps you guessing about. The way each of the four main characters have secrets which are being revealed piece by piece has made me fall in love with them (well maybe not Alfred!) I can't wait to fit all the pieces together and uncover the truth. The writing is punchy and visual. To see the way the characters are painted as lonely and vulnerable because all they have are possessions which they could lose at any time has made me realise the hard life of refugees which is topical. Sepetys' descriptions are really vivid and she keeps surprising me. Even though I haven't finished it yet it should win because the way it is written I feel like each character (even the secondary ones) are important.
