it was amazing

It's a coming of age story, a story of friendship, a WWII story, a story of the important role that women played in that war, a tale of clandestine operations, of personal sacrifice, of rescue... it's loaded with so much of what I like in fiction.

It's also beautifully written, in two parts, in the words of the two main characters.

And there's more to it than the words on the page. So much more.

Loved it.

Giving this as a Christmas gift, so re-read 12/2016. Still loved it.
