Topic: Rose Under Fire, By Elizabeth Wein
For this month of November, I have picked out a book from the library that goes under the name of “Rose Under Fire” by the author Elizabeth Wein, known for being writing the best young adult, and historical fiction. When reading this book for the first time, I was presented with another world war 2 novel which was fiction which I do absolutely love to read and sometimes write or talk about. Unfortunately, this was not a book based on real-life experiences, this was only about a historical fiction novel about a woman named Rose/Roza that was living her life as a novelist in Great Britain, but in the Soviet Union, she was a female fighter pilot. When she flew around German territory, her plane was gunned down by unexpected air defences that were around military camp. Later after crashing to a nearby concentration camp, she was captured by Nazi soldiers and taken to Ravensbruck, a women’s concentration camp and was NOT treated nicely there. This starts her story of what the experience was like when she spent time in a German concentration camp. The only downhill that this book seems to have is that the fact it has no chapters in it, just three parts and mostly dates of her life while held captive in a women's concentration camp. The main upside of this book, it possibly has one of the greatest war adventure plots that I have ever read about, shows you a lot of teamwork and friendship as Rose spends her time in the prison while also keeping herself alive by making poetry about her experiences in the prison. I would definitely recommend this to readers that would absolutely love adventure books and plots with twists inside.
