Elena Smith asked Ruta Sepetys:

Another question, out of the four main characters in Salt to the Sea, which was your favorite and which was most relatable? I'd like to add that Out of the Easy and Salt to the Sea made me realize my love for historical fiction dive well, and I love how you include such amazing romances that really get to me. Between Shades of Grey is on my to-read list still!

Ruta Sepetys Hi Elena,

I really loved Emilia from "Salt to the Sea." My heart broke for her each time I wrote one of her chapters. The most relatable for me to write was Joana.

Thank you!!
Ruta Sepetys
