*Starred Review* German university student Sophie Scholl of the White Rose resistance movement was murdered by the Nazis on February 22, 1943. She and her brother Hans were guillotined for the crime of creating and distributing leaflets that encouraged people to consider what the Third Reich was doing to European Jews and to oppose Hitler. Wilson's highly effective novel in verse travels back and forth between the time of Sophie's youth ("Before") and her final days, from her arrest to her death ("The End"). Clearly labeled and well-structured, the two chronologies are interwoven and paced out so that Sophie's growth into a freethinker, encouraged by her brave and loving family, is shown over time. Even as her execution approaches, we see how her strong character and beliefs led Sophie to sacrifice herself. Wilson also addresses Sophie's complicated relationship with her boyfriend, Fritz, noting her ambivalence towards being in a relationship at all. Very few of the passages feel overwrittenâthe phrase "boom-boom," used to indicate Sophie's understandable fear, is perhaps repeated to excessâbut overall, this moving and inspiring novel will provide readers with a great introduction to some of the Righteous Gentiles who resisted the Nazis. Including a glossary and extensive bibliography, this is a model of well-researched and riveting historical fiction. Grades 7-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
