Action Girl News: Dragons and Nazis

City of Fire

Joshua Middleton shares artwork from the cover of City of Fire, an upcoming Young Adult novel by Laurence Yep. I couldn't find much about it, but it apparently features a young girl as a heroic character. Mostly I just wanted to point out how fantastic that painting is.

Blessed is the Match

I'm not a big fan of documentaries as a rule, but this one about a woman paratrooper who became a WWII resistance fighter sounds like an amazing story that I want to hear. Hannah Senesh left the safety of Palestine in 1944 and parachuted behind enemy lines to rescue Jews in her native Hungary. The description in the link spoils the end of the story, but I'd like to see the movie anyway and learn more about this woman's bravery.
