What I've Read: Code Name Verity

Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein was recommended to me by my sweet friend Lindsay who was like "READ THIS BOOK". So read I did, and quickly. If you like books about WWII and friendship, this one's for you. The story begins with a girl, Verity, who is captured by Nazis and held captive. The only way she is surviving is by writing down all the information she can about her involvement with the military, airfields, secret codes, and her life. In between the information, the torture, and starvation, Verity tells the story of a friendship that bloomed despite the war between herself and her dearest friend Maddie. Maddie was a pilot and she and Verity worked together throughout the war and always relied on one another, until they were separated. This book was so great, it is categorized as young adult so while is isn't horribly graphic, but Verity's brief descriptions do give you a chill and some insight into the fact that she is not just sitting pretty and writing a story. I love anything dealing with WWII so I was immediately interested in reading about a girl who was captured (this is completely fictional by the way). If you have even a slight interest in reading this one I suggest you pick up a copy today!               4/75
