Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that everyone’s eagerly anticipating!
Code Name Verity meets Inglourious Basterds in this fast-paced novel from the author of The Walled City.
The year is 1956, and the Axis powers of the Third Reich and Imperial Japan rule the world. To commemorate their Great Victory over Britain and Russia, Hitler and Emperor Hirohito host the Axis Tour: an annual motorcycle race across their conjoined continents. The victor is awarded an audience with the highly reclusive Adolf Hitler at the Victor's ball.
Yael, who escaped from a death camp, has one goal: Win the race and kill Hitler. A survivor of painful human experimentation, Yael has the power to skinshift and must complete her mission by impersonating last year's only female victor, Adele Wolfe. This deception becomes more difficult when Felix, Adele twin's brother, and Luka, her former love interest, enter the race and watch Yael's every move. But as Yael begins to get closer to the other competitors, can she bring herself to be as ruthless as she needs to be to avoid discovery and complete her mission?
Wolf by Wolf will be released October 20th, 2015 by HarperTeen!
This book has been on my radar for awhile, because there is something about an alternate WWII outcome that has me really intrigued. Plus I really like the idea of this motorcycle race aspect that our main character goes through. This looks like it will be an action-packed adventure and I'm really looking forward to getting my hands on this one.
