This companion to Wein's Printz Honor-winning Code Name Verity (2012) introduces Rose Justice, a Pennsylvania teenager who ferries Allied planes from England to Paris. When she is captured by the Nazis, Rose is sent to Ravensbruck, the women's concentration camp. Here, she endures brutal beatings and is befriended by Polish "Rabbits," victims of horrific medical experimentation. Even in the worst of 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?
