Synopsis: I have two weeks. You’ll shoot me at the end no matter what I do.
That’s what you do to enemy agents. It’s what we do to enemy agents. But I look at all the dark and twisted roads ahead and cooperation is the easy way out. Possibly the only way out for a girl caught red-handed doing dirty work like mine — and I will do anything, anything, to avoid SS-Hauptsturmführer von Linden interrogating me again.
He has said that I can have as much paper as I need. All I have to do is cough up everything I can remember about the British War Effort. And I’m going to. But the story of how I came to be here starts with my friend Maddie. She is the pilot who flew me into France — an Allied Invasion of Two.
We are a sensational team
Wow. Just Wow. Code Name Verity is one of those books that everyone raves about and you know what? They have good reason to. Code Name Verity is an amazing story and the audiobook version does this novel so much justice, I can’t recommend it enough. Between this and Out of The Easy, I just may have a new thing for historical YAs….
