5.0 out of 5 stars Finally Oct. 9 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Finally a book that 2nd and 3rd generation Estonians can really connect with. An educational and compelling read for all. There is not enough written about what happened in the Baltic States. I will definitely have my teenage daughter read this.

After reading Between Shades of Grey, which I absolutely loved, I wasn't sure I could like this book as much. I give both books 5/5 stars. The Darkest Corner Of The World is about a 15-year-old girl named Madli living in Soviet-occupied Estonia. While she is away with her family at her grandparents' farm, the Nazis start to invade Estonia. And the Estonians are happy - they think the Nazis are going to free them.

The Darkest Corner Of The World isn't nearly as gritty, heart-wrenching, or painful to read like Between Shades of Grey. It was definitely easier to read, but it was still very powerful. Madli is betrayed by someone very close to her and her family. Fear makes people do and say horrible things. But she gets her revenge. Madli is an incredibly strong heroine, and I liked her a lot. She is dedicated to her family and is very protective of her brothers, even though one is 3 years older than her. She is very brave, optimistic, and smart. She loves Estonia and wants nothing more than to see it free, yet she knows about the Nazis' hatred for Jews and hates that she has to accept them as the lesser of two evils (or are they?) Madli is a teenage girl thrust into a world of adults. I think most people will like her a lot as a heroine. I found that her only real flaw was her obsession with her father's papers.

The Darkest Corner Of The World was very educating for me. I knew very little about Estonia and had no idea that it was under Soviet and Nazi occupation. I highly recommend this book to anyone who liked Between Shades of Grey.

This book is billed as teen fiction, because it's about a year in the life of a teenage girl, told from her perspective. But it's an exciting read for those well past their teens as well. Beautifully written, historically accurate, what other praise can I give it?
