I was excited to start this book. I love historical fiction, and I especially enjoy world war two era stories. I stayed excited for a few pages then I felt stuck. I just wasn't liking the main character. I kept reading and I am glad that I did. She ended up being my favorite character in the book. She wasn't who I first thought she was and I love that about this book. It kept me guessing until the end.
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein is the story of two very different girls who found themselves pushed together during world war two. The deeper they find themselves in the war efforts, the deeper their friendship grows. When one of the girls is captured she begins to sell her secrets to save her own life.
I am going to keep this review short out of fear of giving away hints about the intricate plot twists of the novel. I didn't see them coming and I'm pretty sure that I read the last quarter of this book with my mouth hanging open. It was one of those books that has kept my brain mulling over every detail for hours (days) after I finished it.
