Description
In this companion to Elizabeth Wein's brilliant Edgar Award–winning young adult novel Code Name Verity, Rose Justice is an American flyer, transporting planes from England to France with the Air Transport Auxiliary in the last year of World War II. Captured by the Nazis, she is not sent to a POW camp but rather to Ravensbrück, the notorious women's concentration camp. She meets an unforgettable group of women there, including a once-glamorous French novelist whose Jewish husband and three young sons have been killed; a resilient young Polish girl who has been used as a guinea pig by Nazi doctors; and a female fighter pilot of the Soviet air force.

"Wein masterfully sets up a stark contrast between the innocent American teen's view of an untarnished world and the realities of the Holocaust.... Rich in detail, from the small kindnesses of fellow prisoners to harrowing scenes of escape and the Nazi Doctors' Trial in Nuremberg, at the core of this novel is the resilience of human nature and the power of friendship and hope."—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Wein excels at weaving research seamlessly into narrative and has crafted another indelible story about friendship borne out of unimaginable adversity."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"The first quarter of the book, which begins in 1944, describes Rose's work, both its dangers and its highs. It also makes the connection between Rose and the heroine of the previous book, Julie, through their mutual friend, Maddie. Despite the vagaries of war, things are going pretty well for Rose, so hearts drop when Rose is captured. It first seems Rose's status as a pilot may save her, but she is quickly shipped off to Ravensbrück, the notorious women's concentration camp in Northern Germany. The horror of the camp, with its medical experimentation on Polish women—called rabbits—is ably captured. Yet, along with the misery, Wein also reveals the humanity that can surface, even in the worst of circumstances.... Though the tension is different than in Code Name Verity, it is still palpable."—Booklist
