BRILLIANT NEW NOVEL: New fiction from one of the most stunning writers in YA historical fiction.
FEATURING ANOTHER FAVORITE CHARACTER: Devotees of her earlier books will be thrilled to see more of Jamie (Julie’s [Code Name Verity] brother) and Ellen from The Pearl Thief—and learn the true identity of Elisabeth Lind.
COMING-OF-AGE AS WELL AS SUSPENSEFUL WWII STORY: A young teen girl unexpectedly on her own, an enigma machine, spies, air battles, wartime rules—this story weaves together several story lines to create an absolutely compelling narrative.
CROSS-OVER POTENTIAL: Like all of Elizabeth’s novels, this has potential to cross over to the adult market. It’s perfect for fans of Transcription, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society and the TV series Bletchley Circle.
IMMIGRATION THEMES: During wartime, Germans were all treated with suspicion; a timely look at how people treat immigrants.
CRITICAL PRAISE: Code Name Verity and Rose Under Fire made it on to countless best books of the year lists: the critical acclaim for Elizabeth’s writing is truly resounding.
STRONG PUBLISHING PARTNERS: We are co-publishing with Disney/Hyperion in the US and Bloomsbury in the UK.
ORIGINAL TRADE PAPERBACK: We are bringing a novel of Elizabeth’s out in OTPB for the first time, in order to build sales and widen her audience.
“A soaring success.”—Kirkus Reviews
“Elizabeth Wein…has created a determined heroine and a thrilling plot that captures the equal mix of desperation and courage that drove the Allies in the early part of WWII.” —A Mighty Girl
