Code Name VerityLife confronting her views on courage failure and her desperate hope to make it home But will trading her secrets be enough to save her from the enemy A universally acclaimed Michael L Printz Award Honor book Code Name Verity is a visceral read of danger resolve and survival that shows just how far true friends will go to save each other. “It’s like being in love discovering your best friend”This is distressing I am very distraught I did not like this book as much as I hoped and it breaks my heart I'm aware that we can't love every book we read and you may think it a tad dramatic of me to say this but WWII historical fiction is a sub genre that I've rarely been let down by EverThis had all the makings of a potential favourite yet somehow missed the mark I'm still reeling from itSet in the turmoil of the Second World War the book follows the fate of two young British women Maddie a modest pilot and Julie an aristocratic Scotswoman turned spy I loved the story just not the way in which it was toldIt took me so long SO LONG to get into the book and I almost I considered giving up completely – mainly because I struggled to follow what was going on and was confused by all the plane jargon coded abbreviations jumping between different time periods and rambling writing style it all felt a bit haphazard There were so many things I couldn't understand like Julie’s determination to bargain for extra time to finish her story when it would just prolong her suffering but my biggest source of confusion was why the Germans were so keen for her to write it as it contained very little information on the British War Effort that would actually be of any use to them I was frustrated by how difficult it was to grasp why certain things were happening such as the interview with an American journalist or even why Maddie and Julie spent a whole day trying to cycle to a café in the rainThe second half of the story shed so much light on almost all of the puzzles and I got into the story as the book went onNeedless to say I was absolutely unprepared for the ending That damned shocking ending which felt like a punch in the throat It was such an unfair twist that I can’t for the life of me get it out of my head StillAs much as I enjoyed the latter half I wish I love the book as a whole because I feel like I've missed out on certain things that would have enhanced my reading experience

Spy's worst nightmare Her Nazi interrogators give her a simple choice reveal her mission or face a grisly executionAs she intricately weaves her confession Verity uncovers her past how she became friends with the pilot Maddie and why she left Maddie in the wrecked fuselage of their plane On each new scrap of paper Verity battles for her. My final foray into World War II territory for now anyway is Elizabeth Wein's Code Name Verity a young adult novel which really defies description but I'll try At its heart Code Name Verity is the story of two young British women Maddie and ueenie or Julie who undertake a secret mission behind enemy lines in Occupied France in 1943 The novel begins as a confession being written by ueenie while being held as a prisoner of the Gestapo Clearly her mission has gone terribly wrong ueenie has been captured tortured and forced to write her story for her interrogators and while that story is fiercely compelling in itself the we read the we begin to sense that there is to ueenie and her mission that we are being told Without giving anything away I can tell you that there are games within games being played here The whole experience for the reader parallels what the characters are feeling Who is telling the truth Whom can we trust Who is an agent a double agent a collaborator a spy Wein clearly knows her subject matter whether it is airplanes the author is a pilot or life during World War II Her characters are so real they leap off the page Maddie and Julie embody courage pluck and humor even in the darkest of circumstances By turns heartrendingly sad and fiercely uplifting Code Name Verity is the best YA book I've read in a long long time If you like historical fiction or spy thrillers or just books that constantly surprise you with OH MY GOD THAT'S WHAT'S GOING ON moments you should really read this I include both versions of the US cover as it has changed Which do you like best
