Malin’s #CBR5 Review #72: Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein

This book is a companion novel to Elisabeth Wein’s Code Name Verity. You don’t need to have read that book to understand this one, but you should anyway, because it’s one of the best books I’ve read in years. And you like good books, don’t you?

Rose Justice is a young American woman, working for the ATA in Britain during World War II. She made friends among the other ATA pilots, she’s dating a young soldier, and she writes poetry in her spare time. Her job is to taxi planes to various locations, and is on an out of the ordinary mission to France, when her plane is captured by the Germans, and she is sent to Ravensbrück, the women’s concentration camp during the autumn of 1944. As very little news of the camps was actually released during the war, and what little came out was usually so horrifying that people didn’t think it could be true, Rose has no idea what she’s in for.
