Code Name Verity

Code Name Verity - Elizabeth Wein I’m a little late coming to the Code Name Verity party but here I am jumping on the band wagon. This is definitely on the top 3 books that I have read in 2012. The story is based during WWI and revolves around two women, their friendship and the roles they play during the war. One ultimately becomes a British spy and the other is an airplane pilot.

The story is written in two parts, the 1st half of the book is narrated by the captured spy’s point of view and the second half is narrated by the pilot. I’m not usually a big fan historical stories but the story has a great flow and as a reader I was quickly drawn in. The difficulty in reviewing the story is that I don’t want to spoil the plot, so generically there are a few interesting plot twists and a few places where you definitely need a tissue handy. This was well worth the read.
