A new YA novel from Elizabeth Wein? Yes, please. I'm still shaking from her last book, Code Name Verity, a deftly plotted book about girl pilots and friendship in World War II. In Rose Under Fire we begin in the air again.

There she bonds with her fellow prisoners, some of whom are known as "Rabbits," victims
