This book tells the story of Sophie Scholl and the White Rose, a young activist group who resisted the Nazis in Germany. It‘s told in verse, so it‘s a fairly quick read. I‘m excited that the story is out there. It‘s YA, but might be a little tricky to follow without background knowledge. It also jumps around in the sequence of events. Still though, could be a great introduction to this amazing group.

This book, which takes place in Nazi Germany, is written in verse. Some of the stanzas are hitting pretty close to home.

It‘s hard to think about Germany 🇩🇪 without thinking of Nazi Germany, and the extermination of Jews and those who helped them...

I‘ve been reading a lot of YA and middle grade lit gearing up for this school year. This is by far the best one I have read all summer! It‘s the true story of Sophie Scholl and the White Roses. It‘s written in verse, which I love and is an easy sell to my students. If you like reading about WWII or brave young women, check this out!

I first learned of Sophie Scholl and The White Rose in my high school German class. Sophie and her brother, Hans, along with others fought the Nazis through distributing anti-Nazi leaflets at their university and beyond.

Wilson‘s novel in verse tells Sophie‘s story in verse, a heroic look at a young women, her brother and friends who spoke truth to power and stood for what they believed.

It's disappointing how few people know about what Sophie and the White Rose resistance did. I think wondering "how the hell did people let things get like that" is always something we'll ask. Just because you aren't the target, doesn't mean it's not your problem. We forget that until that evil suddenly sets its eyes on us. Basically: fuck Nazis, bigots & the state of Georgia, use your fucking voice and privilege to make a better world, vote

I was lucky enough to visit the memorial in Berlin for Sophie and Hans. I havent honestly seen anything written about them so im insanely excited but also nervous. I've never read anything written in verse!

ElishaLovesBooks I thought this book was very well done. It‘s so neat that you‘ve seen the memorial to them! Sophie and Hans were so brave to resist Hitler. (edited) 7mo
BarbaraJean I hadn‘t heard of this one—stacking! This is so serendipitous—I just came across this one yesterday: 7mo

Based on truth, this is the story of Sophie Scholl and her brother Hans, non-Jews who resisted the rule of Hitler and his atrocities. Beautifully told in verse. Well done, Kip Wilson

ElishaLovesBooks I just finished this! Such an important story- that needs to be shared! 💛 8mo

Breathtaking and heartbreaking, this novel in verse provides an intimate glimpse into life of Sophie Scholl, real-life Nazi resister who vowed to speak out against the injustices brought in by her country‘s leader.

Even though it says based on a true story I must have missed that when I started this book. I really enjoyed reading something that I never heard about but have been reading historic fiction and nonfiction for years.
This book is written in verse and it's about the White Rose group made up of German University Students who distributes pamphlets that speak out against Hitler's regime. The group were made up of 1 woman and the rest men.

A #womenshistoryreads first today - I've interviewed (many) novelists before, but never a verse novelist, and I'm fascinated by Kip Wilson's chosen format for her story of Sophie Scholl. Read up on this forthcoming novel on my blog at greermacallister.com/blog .
