The thrilling story of one young ATA pilot's unforgettable journey through World War Two. This is Rose Under Fire. 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. Elizabeth Wein is fast growing into one of the most important names in historical books for young adults. In this, her second book for Egmont Press, she explores a World War 2 story of great significance and harrowing consequences. Something made more haunting by the backdrop of the real-life events of Nazi Germany. Praise for Code Name Verity: "It does more than stick with me. It haunts me. I just can't recommend it enough" Maggie Stiefvater, bestselling author of Shiver "I was bereft when I finished it" Jill Mansell "It's about friendship and bravery, loyalty and love, and will most definitely leave you sobbing" The Bookseller "This is a remarkable book" Daily Mail

“Really good”

There are some scenes in the book which were difficult to read because of the content but I couldn't stop reading. Rose is simply in the wrong place at the wrong time while working as an ATA pilot for the UK when... More
