'Oh God! All those months of not being able to write! Of not being allowed to write. Knowing I'd be shot if I were caught.' Nominated for both the Costa Award and shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal, Rose Under Fire tells the thrilling story of one young ATA pilot’s unforgettable journey through World War Two. Rose Justice is a young American ATA pilot, delivering planes and taxiing pilots for the RAF in the UK during the summer of 1944. A budding poet who feels most alive while flying, she discovers that not all battles are fought in the air. An unforgettable journey from innocence to experience from the author of the New York Times bestseller, Code Name Verity. From the exhilaration of being the youngest pilot in the British air transport auxiliary, to the aftermath of surviving the notorious Ravensbruck women’s concentration camp, Rose’s story is one of courage in the face of adversity. Elizabeth Wein is a leading voice in young adult historical fiction. Look out for her other books Code Name Verity and Black Dove, White Raven. Fans of The Book Thief and Carmen Reid's Cross My Heart will love this. Elizabeth Wein was born in New York, and grew up in England, Jamaica and Pennsylvania. She is married with two children and now lives in Perth, Scotland. Elizabeth is a member of the Ninety-Nines, the International Organization of Women Pilots. She was awarded the Scottish Aero Club's Watson Cup for best student pilot in 2003 and it was her love of flying that partly inspired the idea for her bestselling, award-winning novel Code Name Verity.

Wie lange dauert es? Khalid, ein in England lebender Junge mit pakistanischen Wurzeln, wird anlässlich eines Verwandtenbesuchs in Karachi entführt und landet über ein Zwischenlager in Kandahar in Guantanamo Bay, weil er von den Amerikanern als Terrorist angeklagt wird. Das grausame Schicksal der erfundenen Figur basiert auf realen Berichten aus Guantanamo und weiteren Lagern in Afghanistan und Nordafrika. Nach dem Terroranschlag vom 11. September 2001 beginnt eine hemmungslose Jagd nach Terroristen, die Bevölkerung erhält Geld für Hinweise. So geraten nicht nur viele Männer in die Mühlen der amerikanischen Militärjustiz, sondern auch Kinder und Jugendliche. Die einfache Sichtweise zwischen Gut und Böse, lässt jegliche Menschenwürde mit Füssen treten, Erniedringung und Folter rechtfertigen anscheinend das Ziel. Beklemmend und hautnah spürend, wird anhand der Figur Khalids dieses düstere Kapitel irregeleiteter Militärjustiz beschrieben. Erlösend wirkt dann, dass Khalid doch noch befreit wird, auch wenn der rettende britische Anwalt wie ein "deus ex macchina" auf den Plan tritt und alles zum Guten wendet. Ab 14 Jahren, *****, Elisabeth Tschudi-Moser.

"Think of the sky!" Delia gave Momma's hands a shake. "Think of the sky in Ethiopia! What will it be like to fly in Africa?" This New York Times bestseller is a story of survival, subterfuge, espionage and identity. Rhoda and Delia are American stunt pilots who perform daring aerobatics to appreciative audiences. But while the sight of two girls wingwalking – one white, one black – is a welcome novelty in some parts of the USA, it’s an anathema in others. Rhoda and Delia dream of living in a world where neither gender nor ethnicity determines their life. When Delia is killed in a tragic accident, Rhoda is determined to make that dream come true. She moves to Ethiopia with her daughter, Em, and Delia’s son, Teo. Em and Teo have adapted to scratching a living in a strange land, and feel at home here; but their parents’ legacy of flight and the ability to pilot a plane places them in an elite circle of people watched carefully by the Ethiopian emperor, Haile Selassie, who dreams of creating an air force for his fledgling nation. As Italy prepares for its invasion of Ethiopia, Em and Teo find themselves inextricably entangled in the crisis — and they are called on to help.
