Code Name Verity is a compelling, emotionally rich story with universal themes of friendship and loyalty, heroism and bravery. Two young women from totally different backgrounds are thrown together during World War II: one a working-class girl from Manchester, the other a Scottish aristocrat, one a pilot, the other a wireless operator. Yet whenever their paths cross, they complement each other perfectly and before long become devoted friends. But then a vital mission goes wrong, and one of the friends has to bail out of a faulty plane over France. She is captured by the Gestapo and becomes a prisoner of war. The story begins in Verity's own words, as she writes her account for her captors.

    " This is a wonderful but heart-wrenching novel about many of the forgotten women of history. Though the exact women profiled in this book are fictional, they are perfect portrayals of real women who played their heroic parts during the second world war. This book is full of suspense, emotion, and the love that forms a bond between women in such trying times. "Code Name Verity" is a beautiful and important novel that should be read by anyone and everyone who wants to truly understand what war is like. "

    " This was a beautifully written book that left me again enamored with the tales of true friends who know each other so well that they can see through everything to the truth. It did, however, leave me wondering what makes a 'young adult' book, which is the section in which it is housed in my library. My granddaughter, who is 12, is addicted to women in the navy, WWII, etc. and reads everything she can get her hands on. I thought this book might be one for her, but I quickly realized I did NOT want her to read it. The young women in the story are living in England during WWII and one is a pilot and one becomes an agent. Sounds perfect for a young woman, doesn't it? However, the agent is captured by the Nazis in France and is held and interrogated. I don't want any young person to know the things that a person can face in this situation. I can vividly remember the first time I read any details of the holocaust, and I was shocked that such things could be imagined, let alone enacted. In all fairness, there weren't lengthy descriptions of these things, but they did mention a torture that I had never heard of. I am still amazed at what evil can think up! However, a WONDERFUL book for an adult -- well-written, creatively crafted, and a book that champions the human spirit. "

    " Two young women from different backgrounds become best friends during WWII in England. One becomes a pilot; one becomes a spy; the two of them head to France where survival for either of them is problematic at best. Torture is mostly alluded to, but there are some brutal and disturbing scenes in this beautifully written book of friendship. "

    " I just couldn't get into this book! I didn't finish it. Maybe it's like the old saying it's me not you? "

    " Queenie is a young British spy caught by the Gestapo, in France, after looking the wrong way as she crosses the road. It's best not to know much of the plot, just read it. I laughed, I gasped, I sobbed, boy did I sob. Keep a hanky handy and pay close attention. "

    " When I first started the audio book, I was not sure I would make it through , but as I kept listening the characters started to intrique me and finally ensnare me. I would not rate the story itslef that high , but the characters she creates keep you wanting to find out more about them. "

    " I'm not sure why this was so difficult for me. Definitely a time period I know very little of. Inspired by the strength and courage of the girls, humbled by all that went on. I heard so much about it and was surprised that it wasn't something I just fell in love with. "

    " A very moving tale of friendship that will make you laugh and cry. Loved it. (3 gasps included as Maggie Stiefvater would say) "

    " I LOVED this. Intricate, deep, gripping, it was a puzzle-box of a book that I wanted to re-read as soon as I finished. More, please! "
