Elizabeth Wein – Rose Under Fire

November 21, 2014

86. Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein (2013)
Code Name Verity, Book 2 (although this is really more of a companion novel than a sequel – it happens a few months after Code Name Verity, and characters from that novel make cameo appearances in this one, but they could be read – and understood – totally independently.)

Read my review of book:
1. Code Name Verity

Length: 360 pages
Genre: Historical Fiction; Young Adult

Started / Finished: 18 October 2014 (during readathon!)

Where did it come from? Purchased from Amazon.
Why do I have it? I loved Code Name Verity and wanted more.
How long has it been on my TBR pile? Since 02 September 2014.

A concentration
camp must be terrible for
one who longs to fly.
