Sepetys’s newest novel is set in Romania, 1989. Communist regimes are crumbling across Europe. Seventeen-year-old Cristian Florescu dreams of becoming a writer, but Romanians aren’t free to dream; they are bound by rules and force. Amidst the tyrannical dictatorship of Nicolae Ceaușescu, Cristian is blackmailed by the secret police to become an informer. He has only two choices: betray everyone he loves or use his position to creatively undermine the most notoriously evil dictator in Eastern Europe. This amazing thriller examines the little-known history of a nation defined by silence, pain, and the unwavering conviction of the human spirit. Find it on our shelves or as an ebook on Libby.
