Rose Under Fire, by award winning author Elizabeth Wein, is the companion book to Code name Verity. It continues the World War II story of amateur poet Rose Justice, who is captured by the Nazis and sent to a women’s concentration camp. Both books contain riveting stories for our teen-age audience.
Rose is a young girl who does not seem to stand a single chance against the Nazis interrogators. Though trapped she is inspired by other women in the camp; a female fighter pilot, a young Polish girl and a once famous French novelist. Through loyalty, bravery and strong resolution, Rose is determined to survive.
Elizabeth Wein was born in New York, but currently lives with her family in Scotland. She is a pilot of small planes and holds a PhD from the University of Pa.
