This was one of the best books I have ever read! Everything was so emotional, so real, so painful... I have never cried so much since I read book... "Between shades of gray" is vey easy to read, but it's very "heavy" book. Love it! �????????�???????�??????�?????�????�???�??�?�¢�??????�?????�????�???�??�?�¢?�??????�?????�????�???�??�?�¢�????????�???????�??????�?????�????�???�??�?�¥
