Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
Published by Egmont Press on February 6, 2012

“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 dirty work like mine — and I will do anything, anything, to avoid SS-Hauptsturmführer von Linden interrogating 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.” —From Goodreads

All I can say is wow. I’m surprised that I have never made it through this book until now. It is a great tale of friendship and of World War II. I’m excited to read the companion novel, Rose Under Fire.  I’m really glad my book club chose this book so that I would have to read this book.

Disclosure: I borrowed this book from my library.
