OLDER FICTION
Wilson, Kip

White Rose

(2) YA Sophie Scholl was a real-life German university student and member of the anti-Hitler White Rose resistance movement executed by the Nazis in February 1943. This verse novel starts near "THE END," with her interrogation at Gestapo headquarters; goes back to "BEFORE," beginning in 1935; then alternates between timelines. Most of the entries are poems in Sophie's imagined voice, and Wilson does an exceptional job revealing Sophie's inner thoughts and feelings. Bib., glos.
