    Summary

    When Petrova Fossil and her sisters were little, they made a vow to put their name in the history books, because their name was their very own, and no one could say it was because of their grandparents. Later Pauline and Posy decided (rightly or wrongly) that a film star and dancer weren’t likely to appear in history books, so the two of them would do whatever they could to help Petrova put their name in the history books.

    This story tells how Petrova started to fulfil that vow.

    Sometimes you run into the person you need to meet.

    Note: This is set post-Code Name Verity so it has spoilers for the book! If you're planning to read CNV, go do that first. It's one of those books that really benefits from being unspoiled.
