Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

Synopsis (from Goodreads)

Pages: 447
Publisher: Egmont Press 
Released: 6th of February 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.

We are a sensational team.

What I Have To Say 

You know those books where you get to half way through or something and there are reveals that completely change everything you’ve just read? Code Name Verity is one of those. I want to reread it. Before I had even finished it I wanted to reread it. And I will. I don’t get much time to reread books. There are always new and exciting books to read. But for Code Name Verity, I will definitely make an extra effort.

The characters were also so fun and easy to read. Queenie was one of those characters that is really easy to get to know and love. Maddie took a little longer but that was mostly because I missed Queenie. I wanted to know what had happened to her and I loved her voice so much.

The writing was very believable. It actually felt like reading their diaries, even Queenie being meant  to write down information and getting distracted all the time. She felt believable and lovable.

It’s another book that I just can’t get over how much I love it.
