Guest Review: Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

Wednesday, October 21, 2015
Why I chose this book:
Despite my love of historical fiction, I was cautious approaching this novel. I had previously heard that Code Name Verity was a tearjerker for many, and I was unsure if I was interested in reading a book that conjured heavy emotion after recently experiencing the rollercoaster that was Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom. However, an adamant reader and friend of mine claimed it was a must-read. It follows, then, that I grabbed the nearest copy I could find and dove in. I was not disappointed.


Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion
Release Date: February 6th, 2012
Genre: Historical Fiction, Young Adult
Format: Paperback

Synopsis:
I have two weeks. You'll shoot me at the end no matter what I do.

That's what you do to enemy agents. It's what we do to enemy agents. But I look at all the dark and twisted roads ahead and cooperation is the easy way out. Possibly the only way out for a girl caught red-handed doing dity work like mine--and I will do anything, anything to avoid SS-Hauptsturmf├╝hrer von Linden interrogation me again.

He has said that I can have as much paper as I need. All I have to do is cough up everything I can remember about the British War Effort. And I'm going to. But the story of how I came to be here starts with my friend Maddie. She is the pilot who flew me into France--an Allied Invasion of Two.

We are a sensational team. (Goodeads)
