Alexis | 4 comments I read this book when my dad brought it home from work, in either 2015 or 2016. I think the book was published in 2013, but I could be wrong. From what I remember, the book is about a young polish boy who is sent to a Siberian work camp with his family. I don't remember his name, but I do know he had a little brother or sister named Edek. (the rest from here is pretty much spoilers) after the family is released (or they might have escaped) from the camps, they travel to another country. I dont remember which one but I think it was Kazakhstan. I remember them traveling through the russian cities of Tomsk, Omsk, and Novosibirsk. I dont really remember much from there, but I know the family ended up in Mexico somehow before they were able to arrive in America. I hope this helps! I've been searching for this book for days, so thank you to anyone who is able to offer me and information on what it could be.

Alexis | 4 comments Ah, no. I just searched it up and it’s not that one. But I do remember that at the end of the book, they end up somewhere in New York at the end. I believe it was a town in upstate New York, or maybe it was Albany?
