Between Shades of Gray by Ruth Sepetys

For those of you who read The Diary of Anne Frank, this is similar (spoiler alert! --it has a more upbeat ending). Similar to Diary of Anne Frank, you  find yourself drawn into the journal of this teenage girl.

In 1941, fifteen-year-old Lina, her mother, and brother are pulled from their Lithuanian home by Soviet guards and sent to Siberia, where her father is sentenced to death in a  prison camp while she fights for her life, vowing to honor her family and the thousands like hers by burying her story in a jar on Lithuanian soil. Based on the author's family, includes a historical note.

Here's a You Tube video about the true story which the book is based on:
