Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

This is a book about which much cannot be said in an effort to keep its secrets.

(After all, loose lips sink tight ships!)

A story about friendship set against the backdrop of World War II, Code Name Verity is technically YA but I think speaks to audiences of all ages. Engaging, tragic, and in some places funny, the first (and only) word that comes to mind when asked to describe the overall experience is heartbreaking.

In this day and age, perhaps the highest compliment you can pay a book is that you purchase it in its physical form. This is one of those novels that I’m glad I own.

Deeper than a summer beach book, but not so dark that you’ll need to chase this novel with something fluffy, I highly recommend.

Available in both paperback and eBook
