Agent Most Wanted

The Never-Before-Told Story of the Most Dangerous Spy of World War II

Virginia Hall was deemed "the most dangerous of all allied spies" by the Gestapo. Armed with her wits and her prosthetic leg, she was deployed behind enemy lines to inspire resistance in France, providing crucial support to fighting the Nazi occupation. The Nazis knew her only as "the Limping Lady," and even after a daring escape on foot through the Pyrenees mountains — and then a return to France to help with liberation — they never caught her. In this largely untold story, Sonia Purnell uncovers the truth behind a Baltimore socialite who was essential to Allied victory.

This young readers adaptation of Sonia Purnell's bestselling book A Woman of No Importance, tells the story of an unassuming yet daring spy who helped change the course of the war! Young readers will hold their breath as Hall defies the Nazis again and again despite the danger, always staying just out of their grasp. This incredible true story is equal parts an inspiring tale of feminism in a time when women weren't taken seriously, an epic spy story, and, of course, a retelling of winning one of the largest global conflicts in modern history.
