‘This story, I knew, was about the freckle-faced soldier girl.’
North Africa, 1943. The Tunisian desert is full of dangers, with German fighters scattered across the land. Reporter Ann ‘Spats’ Patrone is looking for a story - and in fierce soldier girl Rio Richlin and a desperate night mission, she might have found one . . .
A thrilling novella, set in Michael Grant's critically-acclaimed Front Lines universe.
Praise for Front Lines: “What if American women had fought alongside men in World War II? Michael Grant gives us a magnificent alternate history that feels so real and right and true it seems impossible that it wasn’t. Every one of these fictional soldiers has wrapped herself around my heart.” (Elizabeth Wein, award-winning and New York Times bestselling author of Code Name Verity)
“Michael Grant is a master of twists that not only tear at his readers’ consciences, they hold a mirror up to our here and now and insist we consider what might otherwise be. Front Lines is a masterpiece of speculative story crafting.” (Andrew Smith, Printz Honor winning author of Grasshopper Jungle)
Front Lines was shortlisted for Feminist Book of the Year in the Maximum Pop Bookish Awards.
