I Must Betray You by Ruta Sepetys



This book is set in Romania in 1989 during the time it was a Communist country. I found this book very interesting and moving. The author told the story of the many difficulties the Romanian people had to face. I’d recommend this book for people age 13+. By: Maya (age 15). Rating: 5/5.
