Code Name Verity by:Elizabeth Wein

Code Name Verity is a story about a British spy who has been captured. She tell us her story through the story of her friend Maddie. The spy openly admits that she is a coward and that her death is two weeks away. She gives away sets of wireless codes to delay her death. Does she somehow escape or does she meet Death like an old friend?

Code Name Verity is a book that I normally wouldn't read on my own. I read it for a competition.. The thing about it is that Code Name Verity totally surprised me. I thought it would be one of those boring historical books but no it was actually very interesting. It was very mysterious which made me want to keep reading. I liked it very much. One of my friends had already read it and she didn't like it. Since I have very similar tastes in books as she does, I was a bit apprehensive when I started reading it. But it totally sucked me in. I would give it 5 stars just because of the amazing plot and sudden twists and turns that shock you.
