Author: Elizabeth Wein
Series: Code Name Verity book 1
Genre: teen historical fiction
Rating: 4 stars
Code Name Verity is a WWII novel about female spies and female pilots behind enemy lines. There's not much WWII fiction written for teens, and what's out there is mostly about them on the home front. However most of the fighters both in the form of soldiers, pilots and the resistance fighters were 17, 18, and 19 year olds who's stories need to be told. Even if it is in the form of historical fiction.
That's what I loved about Code Name Verity it didn't shy away from the hard stuff. There are two parts of the book told from two different points of view. Which helps to bring the story to life. It is worth the read.
