I remember loving This Savage Song (that title!) and basically all Victoria Schwab has to offer, and I’ve been waiting for the second half of the duology for a long time.

Shapeshifter. Motorcycle race. Killing Hitler.
As a Jewish seven-year-old, Yael was herded into a concentration camp with her mother and selected for gruesome experiments–ones that eventually gave her supernatural powers—she can change her face, hair, and height at will—skinshift. With the help of other prisoners and her new ability, Yael escapes from the prison camp and survives on the streets by stealing. One day she is rescued and recruited by the resistance, who still operated in hopes of overthrowing Hitler. Yael’s superpower can change everything. She trains from then on for one goal: kill Hitler. And not just any ordinary, covert assassination; Yael is to pose as the famous first female motorcycle racer, Adele Wolfe, who impersonated her twin brother to enter the all-male motorcycle race and won, and to whom Hitler has taken a fancy. Every year, Germany and Japan host a motorcycle race, an Axis tour from Berlin to Tokyo. This year, “Adele” will win as a Victor again thus earning the Double Cross, an honor never bestowed on anyone, get close enough to Hitler, and deliver the one public, televised shot that kills him and sparks the smoldering rebellion worldwide.
