But not all promises can be kept . . . This paperback edition includes book club questions and exclusive interviews with Wilhelm Gustloff survivors and experts. Review Praise for Salt to the Sea: A #1 New York Times Bestseller An International Bestseller Winner of the Carnegie Medal Featured on NPR's Morning Edition   "Ruta Sepetys acts as champion of the interstitial people so often ignored — whole populations lost in the cracks of history."— The New York Times   "Superlative...masterfully crafted...[a] powerful work of historical fiction."—The Wall Street Journal [Sepetys is] a master of YA fiction…she once again anchors a panoramic view of epic tragedy in perspectives that feel deeply textured and immediate."—Entertainment Weekly "[A] riveting novel . . . Sepetys skillfully weaves history into her story, here grounding her nuanced characters in the events of winter 1945. Vivid details punctuate the spare prose."— The Washington Post "[H]aunting, heartbreaking, hopeful and altogether of the best young-adult novels to appear in a very long time."—Salt Lake Tribune   "Ruta Sepetys is a master of historical fiction. In  Salt to the Sea the hard truths of her herculean research are tempered with effortless, intimate storytelling, as her warm and human characters breathe new life into one of the world's most terrible and neglected tragedies." — Elizabeth Wein, New York Times bestselling author of Printz Award Honor Book Code Name Verity “A rich, page-turning story that brings to vivid life a terrifying—and little-known—moment in World War II history.” — Steve Sheinkin, author of Newbery Honor and National Book Award finalist Bomb   "Brutal.

What it asks of us is that their memories, and their stories, not be abandoned to the sea."  —Booklist, starred review   * "Artfully told and sensitively crafted, Sepetys’s exploration of this little-known piece of history will leave readers weeping."  —SLJ, starred review "The inevitability of the ending (including the loss of several characters) doesn't change its poignancy, and the short chapters and slowly revealed back stories for each character guarantee the pages keep turning. Heartbreaking, historical, and a little bit hopeful." — Kirkus Reviews "Intimate, extraordinary, artfully crafted...brilliant."—Shelf Awareness    "This book includes all the reasons why teens read:  for knowledge, for romance, for amazing and irritating characters.  This novel will break readers’ hearts and then put them back together a little more whole." — VOYA "Sepetys’s...scene-setting is impeccable; the penetrating cold of the journey is palpable, and she excels at conveying the scope of the losses while giving them a human face....[T]his elegiac tale succeeds with impressive research, affecting characters, and k
