Unlikely Warrior: A Jewish Soldier in Hitler's Army Unlikely Warrior: A Jewish Soldier in Hitler's Army
By Georg Rauch
As a teenager in wartime Vienna, Georg Rauch helped his family hide dozens of Jews behind false walls in their top-floor apartment and arrange for their safe transport out of Nazi-occupied Austria. Nonetheless, in 1943 he was drafted into Hitler's army, soon to be shipped out to fight on the eastern front as a radio operator with the German infantry—in spite of his having confessed his own Jewish ancestry. Thus begins the incredible journey of a young man thrust into a war that was already lost, fighting for a cause in which he never believed. Enter for a Chance to Win a paperback copy of Unlikely Warrior!

The Winner's Crime The Winner's Crime (The Winner's Trilogy #2)
By Marie Rutkoski
Winning what you want may cost you everything you love

A royal wedding is what most girls can only dream about. It means one celebration after another: balls, fireworks, and revelry until dawn. But to Kestrel it means living in a cage of her own making. As the wedding approaches, she aches to tell Arin the truth about her engagement—that she agreed to marry the crown prince just to guarantee Arin's freedom—if she could only trust him. Yet can she even trust herself? This dazzling follow-up to The Winner's Curse reveals the high price of dangerous lies and untrustworthy alliances. The truth will come out, and when it does, Kestrel and Arin will learn just how much their crimes will cost them.
Don't miss the final book in the Winner's Trilogy, The Winner's Kiss, out this month!
