Publishing Deal - Ruta Sepetys

A recent publishing deal in Publishers Weekly:

Philomel.. bought world rights, at auction, to a debut YA novel called Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys. The daughter of Lithuanian refugees, Sepetys relied on research and stories she collected from relatives for the book, about a 15-year-old Lithuanian girl who saves her family—her sketches draw the positive attention of Soviet guards—after the clan is shipped to Siberia as part of Stalin's “cleansing” of the Baltic region during WWII. Philomel is planning a spring 2011 publication.
