Staff Pick: Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein

Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein
From goodreads

While flying an Allied fighter plane from Paris to England, American ATA pilot and amateur poet, Rose Justice, is captured by the Nazis and sent to Ravensbrück, the notorious women's concentration camp. Trapped in horrific circumstances, Rose finds hope in the impossible through the loyalty, bravery and friendship of her fellow prisoners. But will that be enough to endure the fate that's in store for her?

Elizabeth Wein, author of the critically-acclaimed and best-selling Code Name Verity, delivers another stunning WWII thriller. The unforgettable story of Rose Justice is forged from heart-wrenching courage, resolve, and the slim, bright chance of survival.

Pick it: for an incredible story of female friendship in the face of one of history's most devastating tragedies. I was really moved by the way Wein entwined historical facts into this story of an unlikely prisoner.

Skip it: if you prefer your fiction a little more modern.

Pair with: Wein's Code Name Verity for more female-driven WWII stories.
