The Lovereading4Kids comment
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 UKas 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.

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.
An unforgettable journey from innocence to experience from the author of the best-selling, multi-award-nominated Code Name Verity. From the exhilaration of being the youngest pilot in the British air transport auxiliary, to the aftermath of surviving the notorious Ravensbruck women's concentration camp, Rose's story is one of courage in the face of adversity.
Code Name Verity is shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal.
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
