Trailer Tuesday: Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys

I have seen nothing but rave reviews for this book, and I think the trailer is well done as well. (Note: this trailer is 12 minutes long)

Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys
Genre: YA Historical Fiction
Publication Date: March 2011
Book Description (from the publisher):
In 1941, fifteen-year-old Lina is preparing for art school, first dates, and all that summer has to offer. But one night, the Soviet secret police barge violently into her home, deporting her along with her mother and younger brother. They are being sent to Siberia. Lina's father has been separated from the family and sentenced to death in a prison camp. All is lost.
Lina fights for her life, fearless, vowing that if she survives she will honor her family, and the thousands like hers, by documenting their experience in her art and writing. She risks everything to use her art as messages, hoping they will make their way to her father's prison camp to let him know they are still alive.
It is a long and harrowing journey, and it is only their incredible strength, love, and hope that pull Lina and her family through each day. But will love be enough to keep them alive?
Between Shades of Gray is a riveting novel that steals your breath, captures your heart, and reveals the miraculous nature of the human spirit.

What do you think? Have you seen any good book trailers lately?
