Overview

For fans of Girl in the Blue Coat, Salt to the Sea, and The Boy at the Top of the Mountain, the second book of New York Times bestselling author Michael Grant’s epic alternate history is a coming-of-age story about three girls who are fiercely fighting their own personal battles in the midst of the greatest war of all time.

The summer of 1943, World War II. With heavy memories of combat, Frangie, Rainy, Rio and the rest of the American army are moving on to their next target: the Italian island of Sicily.

The women won’t conquer Italy alone. They are not heroes for fighting alongside their brothers—they are soldiers. But Frangie, Rainy, Rio, and the millions of brave females fighting for their country have become a symbol in the fight for equality. They will brave terrible conditions in an endless siege; they will fight to find themselves on the front lines of WWII; and they will come face-to-face with the brutality of war until they win or die.

About the Author

Michael Grant, author of the Gone series, the Messenger of Fear series, the Magnificent Twelve series, and the Front Lines trilogy, has spent much of his life on the move. Raised in a military family, he attended ten schools in five states, as well as three schools in France. Even as an adult he kept moving, and in fact he became a writer in part because it was one of the few jobs that wouldn’t tie him down. His fondest dream is to spend a year circumnavigating the globe and visiting every continent. Yes, even Antarctica. He lives in California with his wife, Katherine Applegate, with whom he cowrote the wildly popular Animorphs series. You can visit him online at www.themichaelgrant.com and follow him on Twitter @MichaelGrantBks.

Well-written WWII story with a twist. Interesting to read about teenagers without a clue becoming soldiers. Ths is the first book I have read by Michael Grant but it won't be the last.

Best book I've read in a long time. Brings back memories of that time when several family members enlisted. They covered all branches I believe.

If life hadn't interrupted, I don't think I would have put this book down until I finished. The second book in the series, and it did not disappoint. The story line is a little grittier, conveying some of the hard truths of war, without being overly graphic, given the target audience. It shares the lives of 3 young women as they slog through war while managing to survive the messy, mean ugliness of their situations. They all change in not so subtle ways, due to fighting on the field, torture of the mind and body at the hand of their fellow soldiers, superiors, the enemy. Not to mention the attitudes at home from the families and general public. The author manages to convey the true ugliness of war, while leaving you with the certainty that he has just scraped the surface of the reality, and true horror of it! Only 15 more days until the final book in the trilogy comes out, "Purple Hearts" I can't wait!

I read the first book in this series and found it very moving. Therefore I purchased the second book, keeping the story fresh in my mind. Waiting on the third installment.
