Rose Under Fire
I read Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein. It was good, really good, but not quite as good as Code Name Verity. This book starts several months after Code Name Verity has ended. An American pilot, Rose Justice, is working in Britain, flying planes back and forth to newly liberated France. She gets captured and sent to a work camp but eventually escapes. She survives to return to England and eventually becomes a reporter covering the Nuremberg trials. None of this is spoilers as the book uses a frame story that Rose is writing about her experience after her escape. It is a fine book but just doesn't have the amazingness of the previous one. Still very recommended, a 6.
