Mrs C, King James's Royal Readers

Salt to the Sea

A sad and moving tale from the point of view of four teenagers, a Lithuanian, a Prussian, a Pole and a German. Joana, Florian, Emilia and Alfred tell their story from very different cultural backgrounds.
Set in WWII these four stories interact, together with the wonderful characters of 6 year old Klaus, the shoe poet Heinz, blind Ingrid and tall Eva. All have one goal, all have secrets. Beautifully told. Short chapters have maximum impact. Every word is important. Although tragic this story was magical.
