The Endless Steppe: Growing Up in Siberia - Esther Hautzig

This is a fairly easy read aimed at middle schoolers. I didn't find it to be overly graphic, and I think most younger readers could handle it. After having read so many brutal accounts of life under Communism, myself, this one actually seemed a bit tame. However, the author captures the voice of a young girl perfectly, and I came to care about her and her family as they faced treacherous circumstances living in Siberia for the unpardonable crime of practicing capitalism.
