Mrs Bennington, Prince Henry's High School
Salt to the Sea
Florian, Emilia, Joana, and the despicable Alfred are all teenagers whose lives overlap as they head for the ship, the Wilhelm Gustloff, to escape from East Prussia in the bitter winter of 1945. Florian, Emilia and Joana all have secrets and are part of a bigger escape group, but their lives become much more closely linked as their flight towards the ship progresses. I found this very interesting and looked up the Wilhelm Gustloff to find out more about the ship and its historical background.
A fascinating but harrowing story but also interesting, so I would give this 8/10 and recommend it to both boys and girls.
