Wold by Wolf by Ryan Graudin
In this book, it is 1956 and Hitler won the war. Yael is a former death camp prisoner who had been experimented on by a doctor. The painful experiments left her different and allowed her to escape. Now she is 17 years old and part of the resistance that is trying to take down the Axis powers. Yael's job is to race in a motorcycle race called the Axis tour and win so that she can get close enough to Hitler to kill him. Throughout the book, she recalls the 5 most important people in her past as she races to win and achieve her goal. Yael is impersonating last year's winner, Adele Wolfe, a task made much more difficult by the unexpected presence of Adele's twin brother, Felix, and Adele's relationship with one of her rival racer's, Luka. This is the first book in an action-packed and intriguing new series.
