HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHAT A HUMAN LIFE IS WORTH? THAT MORNING, MY BROTHER'S WAS WORTHA POCKET WATCH.

Lithuania, June 1941: Fifteen-year-old Lina is preparing for art school and looking forward to summer. In the dark of night there is a knock at the door and life is Soviet secret police arrest Lina, her mother, and her younger brother, tearing their family apart. The three are hauled from their home and thrown into cattle scars, where they soon discover their destination: Siberia. Separated from her father, Lina embeds clues in her drawings and secretly passes them along, hoping they will reach her father's prison camp. In this dramatic and moving story, Lina desperately fights for her life and the lives of those around her. But will love be enough to keep her alive.

Why we chose Smore

The technology we chose was smore, because smore is a simple way to express yourself. The tone of the book was sad and depressing so we thought the smore would be an easy way to show that side of the time period. Since we chose character vacation, we needed a website that was able to contain all the information we needed to include. We chose this background for our flyer to show the gloomy yet beautiful storyline in this novel. The color scheme of this flyer goes along with the theme of the book to show the that even the darkness (a.k.a the gray) there is still hope if you look at it in the right way (blue).

Where would Lina vacation?

Lina would go on vacation to Lithuania, because throughout the book she has flash backs about her life in Lithuania before they were taken. She is constantly talking about how she would one day be reunited with her family back in her home in Lithuania.
