Wow! Code Name Verity is a tricky, tricky book. Its slow lead-up is rather painful. A young Scottish woman is a prisoner of the Germans in occupied France. She is being tortured, and to save herself, she is telling EVERYTHING, writing it on scraps of paper provided by her captors. She stretches the time by telling the story of her friendship with Maddie, and their work in the War Effort. As a reader, I was both drawn to and repulsed by this character. . . and then. . .I was IN.

A must-read for WW II fans, fans of political intrigue--and it's a great story of a friendship.
