Shortlisted for the Costa Children's Book Award 2013.

Highly praised for Code Name Verity, Elizabeth Wein’s Rose Under Fire is an equally gripping story of a young female pilot’s struggle for survival in desperate conditions after she is forced down deep behind the enemy lines in Germany. Rose, a young American over in England as an ATA pilot, records her early days in the UK as she trains and forms strong friendships with the other girls. But Rose wants more action! Flying to France looks like her big break but nothing prepares her for the horrors ahead. Incarcerated in a fearsome German detention camp, Rose uncovers hidden atrocities and tests her own courage to its limits.

If you like Elizabeth Wein you might also like to read books by Anne Blankman.

Synopsis

Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein

Rose Justice is a young American ATA pilot, delivering planes and taxiing pilots for the RAF in the UK during the summer of 1944. A budding poet who feels most alive while flying, she discovers that not all battles are fought in the air.

Reviews

Praise for Code Name Verity

'Code Name Verity does more than stick with me. It haunts me. I just can't recommend it enough.' - Author Maggie Stiefvater

'I liked Code Name Verity enormously... you are sucked into the viewpoint and don't realise for a long time that everything is double edged and has a second meaning.' - Author Helen Dunmore

'A remarkable book, which had me horrified and totally gripped at the same time.' - Daily Mail
