Salt to the Sea

One of the most prominent parts of this book, I enjoyed the aspect of four different narrators. This gave an effect of suspense, resulting in you wanting to read on - finding out the next account of a certain character. Additional to this, the short chapters helped with this affect, by ensuring your desire of knowing will happen very shortly. 'Salt to the Sea', by Ruta Sepetys, is an excellently written account of four people lives during the devastating second world war. The message that each of the main characters' state gives meaning and power to the story. To classify what I mean is, for example, the bit where it states 'Fear is a Hunter'. The best Carnegie book I've read so far.
