Rose Justice, a young American pilot ferrying planes in Britain as part of the Air Transport Auxiliary during WWII, finds herself captured and sent to Ravensbrück women’s concentration camp—but that’s far from the end of the story in Wein’s important novel for young adults. Sasha Pick narrates in Rose’s American accent for most of the audiobook but also delivers authentic-sounding British accents as well as French-, Russian-, and Polish-accented English for Rose’s camp sisters; she even sings and recites poetry. Hearing Rose’s prisoner number—Einundfünfzigtausendvierhundertachtundneunzig (51498)—repeated in harsh German is chilling every time. Listeners will be engrossed by Rose’s experiences, full of horror and hope by equal measure, as she resolves to “tell the world.” J.M.D. 2014 Audies Finalist, SYNC 2015 © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2013]
