Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

I put Code Name Verity on my library queue cause everyone said it was amazing. They weren't lying. Code Name Verity was straight up amazing.
The first part of Code Name Verity is about Queenie. Queenie has been captured and is being held by the Nazis. The first part is her confession and details about England's war plan. I was amazed about the detail that Wein put in there. I admit that it took me some time to get into Code Name Verity. I didn't fully understand what was going on. The second part really helped me understand the first part. This is definitely a book I want to read again.
I didn't cry. I did gasp once.  The writing, the characters were amazing. Code Name Verity will be on my top 10 list for this year.

  6. Yes, this book was fantastic, and it made my "best of 2012" list! I made my daughter read it, and she loved it, too. You do really need to just go with the flow, and eventually it all falls into place.
