Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

Book Cover

Code Name Verity is a historical fiction novel about two allied pilots in World War II, Verity and Maddie. While flying over enemy territory, their planes are shot down. Throughout half the book, you listen to Verity confess to the enemy about her past. In the second part of the book, you read about Maddie and what she goes through as she fights to free Verity.

I found Code Name Verity to be an interesting book because of the way the story goes. Instead of this book taking place in the present, it takes place in the past until the very end. What I didn’t really like was how some parts weren’t really that important to the progression of the story. Also, even though Code Name Verity starts out in an interesting way, parts were very slow paced and boring. Overall, Code Name Verity is a good book that has a different change of pace from the typical historical fiction books I’ve read.
