A gorgeous and timely novel based on the incredible story of Sophie Scholl, a young German college student who challenged the Nazi regime during World War II as part of The White Rose, a non-violent resistance group. Disillusioned by the propaganda of Nazi Germany, Sophie Scholl, her brother, and his fellow soldiers formed the White Rose, a group that wrote and distributed anonymous letters criticising the Nazi regime and calling for action from their fellow German citizens. The following year, Sophie and her brother were arrested for treason and interrogated for information about their collaborators.
This debut novel recounts the lives of Sophie and her friends and highlights their brave stand against fascism in Nazi Germany. AGES: 12 plus AUTHOR: Kip Wilson is the Poetry Editor of the Young Adult Review Network and has a Ph.D. in German Literature.
