Val :) asked Ruta Sepetys:

Hi Ruta! I love your book between shades of grey and I am looking forward to read salt to the sea, my question is what's your biggest inspiration when you are writing a book? Greetings from Mexico, Hoping to come to Mexico!

Ruta Sepetys Hi Valeria!

I love touring in Mexico and meeting the readers there.
In terms of my inspiration - what motivates me is that there are many people who believe the world has forgotten them or their story. Through my novels, I want to give them the voice they lost.

Hoping to come to Mexico soon! :)
Ruta Sepetys
