Jackson, Buzzy2023
The greatest hero of the Second World War... is a girl you've never heard of. A blazing debut novel based on the unsung true story of Hannie Schaft, a young-woman-turned-Dutch-Resistance-fighter in Nazi-occupied 1940, Amsterdam. You're nineteen years old. You have dreams of your own. You never trained to be a soldier.But your dreams died in wartime, and your country is under siege. What do you do when the people you love are no longer safe?Hiding them is not enough. Will you stand aside as the menace of Nazi evil tightens its grip on your homeland? Or do you unleash your fury, joining forces with your enemies' enemies, plotting to strike?Because if not you, then who? You're drawn deep into a web of plots, disguises and assassinations. The Resistance trained you for this. You flash your enemies a smile and beckon them closer. Little do they know you've grown used to the weight of a gun in your hand...Underestimating you is their fatal mistake. Whispers spread like wildfire amongst enemies and friends alike.They will know your name. You're "the Girl with the Red Hair." A match for any Nazi soldier, a true threat, a target.A tale of formidable defiance told through the eyes of a young heroine so notorious that Hitler himself personally ordered for her capture. Buzzy Jackson's debut is an unputdownable novel of love, loyalty, and the limits we confront when our deepest values are tested.
