Nancy Wake By haleigh tankersley and jonathan hickman

Nancy Wake or "The White Mouse", was a French spy in World War II, who helped train soldiers, and rescued Jews from persecution. She was an inspiration to women and is renowned as a hero. Nancy Wake is a pioneering heroine of the 1940's and was awarded the George Medal, Britain's second-highest civilian honor, and the Medal of Freedom, the United States' second-highest.

Nancy Wake and Liesel Menninger at first seem very different, but as you read more about Nancy you see qualities that relate the two in more ways than one. Nancy Wake was always ready for battle, much like how Liesel was always ready to steal books. They both risk a lot to do what's right and what they believe. They changed lives and inspired those around them.
