Nia Fears Mrs. Harris History-E block 4 December, 2015 Book analysis for, “Between shades of Grey.” The book I chose was, “Between shades of grey,” by Ruta Sepetys, and I feel it was a great option.

Up until that point of my life the only genocide we had ever been taught was the Holocaust which specifically targeted Jewish families at the hands of Adolf Hitler.
